In an age of religious and denominational confusion, many groups of pastors and churches have united for the cause of doctrinal and methodological purity. Unfortunately, however, many of these groups are filled with nonsensical gossip that is done under the guise of “discernment.”
One such group has thirteen resolutions against Jerry Falwell, sixteen decrees against the use of contemporary music in worship, and fourteen statements against the Southern Baptist Convention, to go along with their two recent resolutions against John MacArthur and one against John Piper.
In contrast, it is refreshing to see groups of men that God unites for the purpose of proclaiming the centrality of the gospel in all of life and ministry. One such Gospel-centered event was held on April 15-17 in Louisville, KY. The conference was hosted by Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, C.J. Mahaney, and Albert Mohler. It also included speakers such as John Piper, John MacArthur, and R.C. Sproul.
Dan Cruver, a good friend of mine who attended the conference, said, “For those of you who were not able to attend this year’s Together for the Gospel conference, let me encourage you to plan on the 2008 conference. You’ll not leave it disappointed.”
