Reclaiming fraternal love

Whatever the makers of certain films would like us to believe, the authors of Together for the Gospel blog continue to demonstrate how it is possible for real men to have deeply emotionally satisfying and edifying relationships with each other without a hint of homosexuality being present. CJs description of how he met Mark Dever today was great, and the honour he holds him in is an example to all of us. Guys do you have other men that you can say you really love without being at all … [Read more...]

Is Mark Dever an Apostle?

I received another great e-mail question today:I became interested in your blog when I found it through Mark Dever's 9 Marks website. I attended his church for a semester in college, and am friends with two of his former interns (James Santos and Paul Alexander). I'll be going to the T4G conference in April.While jumping around through your site, I came across your description of the various leaders in a church. Very apt! However, I was wondering if you could clarify the "Apostle" position for … [Read more...]

A deliberate mistake from Mohler?

Over on Together for the Gospel Al says of CBMW: "Randy Stinson does a great job as executive director and Lig as hairman".

When will we learn? My take on "The End of the Spear" controversy and Driscoll vs Maclaren

I was very sad to hear of the latest row that has been rocking the blogosphere.  Once again, Christians are giving ammunition to unbelievers who are only too eager to jump on unwise comments and over-the-top reactions.  I wish that I wasnt so embarrassed by the words and actions of some of the people who passionately believe the same gospel I do.  I wish that certain people would stop and think before they write the sort of throw away comment that can be said in a private … [Read more...]
