2. Sinclair Ferguson lays out Christian liberty principles from Romans 14-15 with fresh light.
3. Many churches in the Reformed Church in America are now discussing homosexuality (or women's ordination, if they are conservative), and they need to read this, by Jared Wilson. When a liberal position is newly adopted in their congregation, the conservatives who leave are not the divisive ones. Those driving the church off the biblical road of orthodoxy into the ditch are the divisive ones.
This hits very close to home for me, but it must be said.
If you are trying to change a church's view away from the Scriptural teaching restricting the office of elder to men, or away from disciplining unrepentant homosexual practice, if you are trying to impose different views on a congregation that has held the traditional view up until now, you are being divisive. From the article:
"it isn’t those who believe the Bible when it says sin is sin that are being divisive; it is those who are introducing the idea that some sins aren’t. If you push a decision on something that innovates on the Bible’s testimony, you’re creating the division."
