T4G – My Response to Mark Dever's Talk

I have now listened to the mp3 of Dever's talk. In a previous post, I included some quotes from the sermon, and Challies did a great summary post.During C.J.'s introduction, Mark Dever was credited with being the prime human agent in the formation of the friendships that made the Together for the Gospel conference possible. When I interviewed Mark Dever, his commitment to being relational was immediately apparent. In understanding the T4G phenomenon, it is vital to realise that this is not a … [Read more...]

Josh Harris Reflects on T4G and Shares the Congratulatory Email He Wrote to C.J. on His Return"It is no exaggeration to describe this event as both historic and anointed by God's spirit. I can't do justice to describing the effect of sitting under the teaching of these world-class leaders as they exhorted us . . . ."(tags: SGM mahaney harris humor)"I told C.J. that he wasn't a Concorde - he was a C-141 Starlifter!He carried loads of grace and power in that message, and encouraged and convicted … [Read more...]

Hugh Hewitt Makes a Blooper and Adds an 8th Theologian!

As Jeremy reports, Hugh Hewitt has made a classic mistake! Like everyone else (including me and Challies!) he simply cannot wait until the Together for the Gospel people release their own official version of their articles of doctrinal agreement - I can't blame him, of course! But in his hurry, he lifts the text from Jeremy's blog and misreads the footer to the text Jeremy had typed up. Hewitt's blog still states:'J. Ligon Duncan III, Mark E. Dever, C. J. Mahaney, R. Albert Mohler, Jr., John … [Read more...]

More T4G Nuggets of Truth

Grace Full Words has a great post entitled "T4G Nuggets of Truth " with yet more quotes from the conference. These are the ones that stood out to me but there are more over on his blog!Mark Dever"The Apostles were ministers not masters." "We are not to write the mail, we are only to deliver it." "Do not be concerned with being original, but you must be reliable.""We are fallen enough to even have a clear concious and still be wrong.""The only way to follow Jesus is to die daily to self … [Read more...]

T4GB decoded and a complement worth having

Over at Together for the Gospel: you need the gift of interpretation of strange tongues from time to time to read! Take this example of Lig making sense of a previous post. Actually, I discern the spirit of Mahaney in some of these comments - the complements sound like just the sort of thing he would say! When you hear Al Mohler begin his radio program by a long speech praising the virtues of his producer and saying what an outstanding man the producer is and how worthy of emulation his … [Read more...]
