Pastor Don Johnson has kindly posted something from me on his oxgoad blog. I didn’t post it here because it deals with issues in broader evangelicalism that haven’t been a focus of my attention on this blog. It isn’t perhaps as relevant to believers in the UK as in the US (it deals somewhat with the decisions of certain individuals in the US), though the principles certainly apply everywhere. The question at hand is caution in ministry endorsements. It is a matter of personal interest to me in part because of my background. If you are interested, give it a look. He has several posts that give more history on the topic. For those in our church, feel free to ask me if any of this doesn’t make sense, and I’ll get you some further background.
For those visiting from oxgoad, I’m a pastor earning my living as a computer programmer in Glenrothes, Scotland. I started this blog primarily as a ministry for people in our church, especially if they have to miss services. My focus here is primarily on that which will be edifying to our church members. I don’t deal a lot with controversial issues, but neither do I dodge them. I try to study and apply Scripture carefully but fervently. If you look around, I might step on your toes, but hopefully I will encourage you far more. I pray you’ll find something of profit on your visit here.
