It has been roughly a year since the evangelical and small-c calvinist worlds were embroiled in the ongoing collapse of Mars Hill Church and the once booming ministry of Mark Driscoll. A cascade of revelations, from plagiarized material to authoritarian abuses to dishonest financial practices all resulted in the collapse of Driscoll’s reputation and, ultimately, the loss of his ministry.

In the midst of this disaster Evangelical Fix-it Man Paul Tripp™ was flown in to become part of something called the Board of Advisors and Accountability, which was patterned after the apostolic institution of the…uh…never mind.

Benjamin Keach’s Definition of Drunkenness

Making Disciples will Change the World

“You can organize marches and make your protests. It all comes to nothing, and makes not the slightest difference to anyone. But if you have a large number of individual Christians in a nation, or in the world, then and only then can you begin to expect Christian conduct on the international and national level. I do not listen to a man who tells me how to solve the world’s problems if he cannot solve his own personal problems. If a man’s home is in a state of discord, his opinions about the state of the nation or the state of the world are purely theoretical.”

Martin Llyod Jones (1899-1981)
