Most of us don’t have access to these guys, and even if we did, it would be difficult to get them all in the same room at the same time. Even if we pulled that off, what questions would be best to ask?
Southern Seminary’s magazine, The Tie, has done the hard work for us. Thanks to The Tie, we can all read a fascinating “forum” with Drs. Moore, Whitney, Wills, and Orrick on the question “Is the Doctrine of the Church Really That Important?” A PDF of The Tie is available here, and the forum is on pages 4-5.
Anyone interested in the church will benefit from this forum.
My dear friend Barry Joslin also has a helpful article on Church Discipline in this issue of The Tie on pages 14-15, and for those in the Houston area who want to think further about these issues, the Redeemer Institute Seminar on The Local Church is on November 10.
