I respect many of those who chose to sign the Nashville Statement. Some of them are friends. And, as I have stated before, I am in agreement with the substance of the document. However, any suggestion that those who drafted and/or signed the Nashville Statement are like John the Baptist is, to...
Just as we predicted on the podcast, signing the Nashville Statement has become a measure of one’s commitment to biblical sexual ethics and gender distinctions. These sorts of things are inevitable. One group drafts a statement and opens it up to signatures with all the right people and...
I had a few spare minutes so I thought I’d ask… Are the Presbyterian members of The Gospel Coalition Board bothered at all by the fact that TGC’s website employs images of Christ? As Presbyterians they have taken sacred vows to uphold and teach according to the Westminster...
On October 12-15 Midway Presbyterian Church in Powder Springs, GA will be hosting the Reformation Worship Conference . It promises to be an excellent time of instruction and fellowship.
