Covenant Life Church Has More Trouble

This time it appears to be tangential. Currently, across the pond, John Smyth, a prominent lawyer who ran Christian summer camps in England, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, is accused of horrific abuses. At least one death occurred on his watch. While some might argue, “Nothing has been proven,” the accusations are of sufficient credibility that […]

My $0.02 on Barnabas Piper

Our friends at The Wartburg Watch are having quite the row over Barnabas Piper, the son of John Piper. His defenders will point out that the divorce was due to his wife having an affair, whereas his detractors (among whom are the TWW crowd) will point out the hard line that John Piper–Barnabas’ father–has taken […]

Gospel for Asia in Hot Water: Suit Not Dismissed

And to that, I say good. If Gospel for Asia (GFA) committed fraud–an allegation that has yet to be established in court but seems to have veracity–then they should pay big-time. While I’m not a big fan of Warren Throckmorton–he has his own left-leaning agenda–he is, to his credit, providing some good reporting that merits […]

Baptist Congregation in DC Calls Lesbian Couple as “Co-Pastors”

I cannot say that I am surprised at this. It is what you ultimately get when you disavow the truth. Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, DC parted ways with the Southern Baptist Convention a few years ago. While I can think of plenty of good reasons why a church might to that, theirs were not […]

May They Rot in Hell

Religious leaders “blessing” the opening of a Planned Parenthood clinic.

Every Christian Needs To Read This

Rosaria Butterfield, a former professor at Syracuse University–and who departed the LGBT community when she received Jesus Christ–weighed in on Jen Hatmaker’s endorsement of gay “marriage”. Priceless! Hatmaker is a false teacher. I don’t throw that term–false teacher–around lightly, as I generally have a big tent when it comes to Christian preachers and teachers. Good […]

Gary Thomas, Sacred Marriage, and Spouse Abuse

I’ve read Gary Thomas’s book Sacred Marriage. I found it to be very insightful, and I highly recommend it. I also agree with Thomas’s recent assessments regarding spouse abuse, although I also believe that the ranks of abusers in this are not restricted to men. Having said that, Deb at TWW raises an issue regarding […]

TWW, Francis Schaeffer, Calvinism, and Spouse Abuse

That Francis Schaeffer allegedly abused his wife (Edith Schaeffer), and had sexual issues, is not news to me. Their son, Frank Schaeffer, has written and spoken considerably regarding the baggage he inherited from his parents. The cynic in me says that Frank is telling the truth. Dee, at The Wartburg Watch, opines here, attempting–as expected–to […]

When TWW Gets it Wrong: Complimentarianism and Abuse

This is the perfect example, in which Dee conflates the issue of [apparent] correlation and causation. Here are the questions: (a) Does complimentarianism CAUSE abuse? (b) Does complimentarianism PREVENT abuse? (c) Does egalitarianism CAUSE or PREVENT abuse? (d) What DOES prevent abuse? While we have plenty of examples of abuses from complimentarian churches, let’s be […]

When TWW Gets it Right: a 6-Year-Old Doesn’t Like Soccer

Obviously, this should be a no-brainer. Background: a 6-year-old child who played soccer for one season decides he does not want to play another season, and yet the parents want to sign him up for another season. Here is the background piece, by Brownwyn Lea, writing for The Gospel Coalition. I’m going to be a […]
