In all the fallout from the Together For the Gospel conference controversy, I believe a critical point has been missed.
That point is this.
The 8-10,000 pastors assembled learned more than theology from Al Mohler and C.J. Mahaney.
They learned to have the same attitudes toward abuse and abuse victims that their leaders have.
Mohler mocked the whole situation and mocked those who have brought attention to the matter.
Men of conscience and the Holy Spirit would have walked out at that point.
If any of them did, they were too few to notice.
They applauded their leaders and went home ready to duplicate the same attitudes that were displayed in front of them.
Tyrants begetting tyrants…
God help us all.
This week Phil and I speak of how people control the narrative in these cases and God’s narrative about you.
