Gospel Coalition (TGC) Shows Tullian Tchividjian the Door

Here is the Janet Mefferd interview of Tullian Tchividjian after he spoke out against Sovereign Grace Ministries and C.J. Mahaney’s knowledge of the SGM sex scandal – and subsequently was given the “left foot” of fellowship by TGC who has protected CJ from the beginning. “Give me a break.  These people [Mahaney & Layman], they’re […]

Tim Keller, The Gospel Coalition and the Promotion of Roman Catholic Mysticism

Take pride in being “reformed”? Be careful my friends. New Calvinism is not Calvinism. It may usurp the terms and lingo, but it is not the same thing. New Calvinism is nothing less than a Roman Catholic theological carjacking by the Devil. Tim Keller, and many other new Calvinists, are not truly reformed, Calvinistic theologians […]

Tim Keller Redefines Sin, Undermines the Christian Faith and Promotes a False Christianity

Keller’s redefinition of sin undermines the true Faith by persuading Christians that obedience to God’s moral law is not really that important. He goes so far as to claim that those who believe that discrete acts of sexual immorality or dishonesty are sinful, are actually legalists who don’t understand the real meaning of grace, just […]

Justin Taylor on Janet Mefferd

Apparently, Justin Taylor of the Gospel Coalition just cannot take the heat of Truth. After deleting many comments from this post, Justin finally laid this out to a commenter named Daryl, which reveals much about Justin’s loyalty to the truth before God [ More to come soon, Lord willing ]  : “Daryl, I’m not going […]

The Laws of A Nation Should Mirror the Law and Justice of God

Yet more evidence that ‘Gospel-only’ preaching leads to lawlessness and works against people coming to Christ. The error of pietism (George Mueller, et. al.) = New Calvinist error. Related articles The Law of God Promotes the Gospel (5ptsalt.com)

The Relationship Between New Evangelicalism and New Calvinism

“New Calvinism is a broad tent that encourages doctrinal freedom, and discourages doctrinal disagreements. Both charismatic practices and some emerging church ideas have found an eager welcome in the New Calvinist tent. Despite lip service to the doctrines of Calvin, few in the New Calvinist movement adhere to the Westminster Confession of Faith, or the […]

Tim Keller’s Neo-Marxism

“In his best-seller, The Reason for God, Keller says that he was ‘heavily influenced by the neo-Marxist critical theory of the Frankfurt School. He writes: ‘The social activism was particulary attractive, and the critique of American bourgeoisie society was compelling’. He admits that he ‘was emotionally’ drawn to the social activism of the neo-Marxists. Keller […]

The Front Porch: Rebuilding the Wall the Gospel Tore Down

In this video, Louis Love, Thabiti Anyabwile, and Tony Carter discuss their main hopes for their new venture, The Front Porch. They hope it is a place for conversations about biblical faithfulness in African-American churches and beyond. Thabiti Anyabwile, in being asked “Why the need for ‘The Front Porch’, answers: “The black church is large. […]

The Gospel Coalition’s Attack on the Bible

If there was ever any doubt that the Gospel Coalition was engaged in bringing the truth of God’s Word, and the exceeding errors of Roman Catholicism together, I would think that this would erase all doubts from the minds of Tim Keller/TGC readers and fan-boys… then again, I’ve been wrong before. Just in case it […]

How Much Do You Really Know About C.S. Lewis?

In light of the incredible popularity of the writings, videos and quotations of C.S. Lewis among evangelicals (and especially new Calvinists), I thought it helpful to get a more accurate portrait of Lewis than what those promoting him have been giving. The following article of research on Lewis is by David Cloud. Link is at […]

Book Review: The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness by Tim Keller

Review by Dr. E.S. Williams In his booklet The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness (2012), Dr Timothy Keller, according to the descriptive blurb, is showing that “gospel humility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self condemnation. A truly gospel humble person is not a self hating […]

You’re Not Baptist

If you call yourself Baptist – and you are a Pastor, a Sunday School teacher, or even a ‘Christian’ blogger, and you encourage people who are professing Christians, to read or follow anything by The Gospel Coalition, or listen to and trust those who promote them, I truly do not see how you can possibly […]

Q&A: What Do You Really Think About the Gospel Coalition?

Ans: I think anytime you align yourself to the Gospel Coalition, you align yourself with, and support, ecumenicists, and that my friends, is to stand against God and His Word. We clear now?

Q&A: Why Should I Continue to Read Your Blog?

Answer: Would the Gospel Coalition love you enough to call you stupid if you needed to be?

Rumors of Pending Resignation of SGM’s CJ Mahaney and John Loftness

From Brent Detweiler on Sunday, March 3, 2013: “When will the lying stop?  The letter you wrote the SGM pastors about John Loftness’ resignation was not truthful and now you are doing the same with the letter regarding C.J.’s upcoming resignation.  You need to stop dead in your tracks and start over!  This time write […]

Tim Keller’s Heterodox Views of God & Christianity

In his book, The Reason for God (quite a title!) Tim Keller espouses some, shall we say, heterodox thinking in regards to the nature and character of God as well as some pretty strange thinking of Christianity. I won’t cite everything that gave me the heebies, but here are a few. For example, Keller claims: […]

The Compromise of Lecrae and Those Who Promote Him

‘Holy’ hip-hop artist Lecrae has won a Grammy award. But he wouldn’t want to be called a holy hip-hop artist, or even a Gospel artist. Tell that to those who promote him, like the Gospel Coalition, John MacArthur and Grace-to-You, or John Piper and his Desiring God ministries. Why wouldn’t he want to identify with […]

Was Trevin Wax Misrepresented?

Recently, I was publically charged with misrepresenting Trevin Wax, a blogger on The Gospel Coalition (TGC). Trevin is also the managing Editor for Lifeway’s newest intensive Bible study, titled, “The Gospel Project”. https://twitter.com/jaredhmoore/status/298443151616643073 I take such charges seriously. Normally, I dismiss such things as frivolous, mostly because the majority of such vitriol comes from the […]

Cooperative Baptists Going the Way of Emergents

  There’s a disturbing and growing trend in Baptist camps, namely, that of the practice of contemplative worship. It’s an ancient form of worship alright, but it’s not biblical. Just more strange fire leading Protestants back to Romish popery. This article in the Associated Baptist Press (ABP) talks about this growing trend. Listen to one […]
