A couple of weeks ago I singled out the guys at White Horse Inn for their Truly Reformed® chastisement of the necessary consequences of the Gospel. I am sure many of you remember and will never really be the same again, one way or the other.
Now, it turns out I'm a fair guy -- when they do something which is also admirable and mitigates some of the flaws of their excesses, I'm willing to fess up in the same venue which I made the criticisms as well.
I was listening to an older podcast from Horton & Co. from 28 Oct 2008 called "What is a true church?", and at about 30:30 in that podcast, we get the following exchange:
Now, some of you tuned out of this when Prof. Horton said, "Is the Gospel rightly preached?" about 1/3rd of the way in. But the last 2/3rds is the part you need to confider more fully -- especially the parts about the flaws in your local pastor.
Of particular note should the the one word in this passage in green which I insterted. That's a tickler, and if Kim Riddlebarger didn't mean that, I'd be glad to receive his correction there.
"Is the Gospel rightly preached?" is not half as glib a consideration as many of us make it, people. An big kudos to the WHI team (even if it was a year ago) for making this point in a very specific way.
