Are We Allowed to Say Anything?
I saw this posted on J.D.’s blog today and had to repost it–something we all need to hear concerning the proper place of public, intentional controversy in ministry. Great food for thought. It’s a response letter called “On Controversy” written from John Newton (author of Amazing Grace, of course) to a pastor friend who was about to write a letter to a fellow minister calling him on the carpet for his lack of orthodoxy. Newton chimed in with some impeccable wisdom about this decision. Check it out.
