Carl Trueman and the Elephant Room

If you've been following the debacle that is the Elephant Room controversy, you'll want to listen to this interview between Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio and Carl Trueman. In fact, even if you haven't been following this story, you should take 25 minutes and listen.
"I've received from an employee of TGC (The Gospel Coalition) just last week an email basically telling me to shut up about James MacDonald because I'm effectively opposing the work of the church." — Carl Trueman (05:23 - 05:38, here)
After you've listened to that, you'll want to read this article: TGC and the Silencing of Opposing Voices.


  1. Thanks EBenz for featuring this post. Your blog is a treasure-trove. The recording is well worth listening to and I enjoyed it very much. Carl Trueman and Mike Abendroth appear to have voices of reason in a time of rampant church folly. I’m dispirited from all the compromise and errors displayed by so many Christian leaders today, so it’s refreshing to find a few who are still holding their ground on sound doctrine as a primary qualifier for pastors. Keep up the good work!

  2. Hello EBenz,
    Listened to the audio interview with Carl Trueman. I then went to listen to the 5G promo and the history of Harvest.
    While I believe in giving towards a God driven project,I realize not all projects are from above.
    The world has seen what man can do and they scoff or barely seem to take notice.(Christians are amazed at fund raising efforts and large buildings!)The world is waiting not for, "...human wisdom, but (for)... demonstration of the Spirit and of power..."
    God help me,"that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death..."
    When Galatians 2:20 becomes the normal teaching in the churches, the world will see what Christ can do and hate us or join us.
    In Christ,
