Wilson wants to see some scars on their forearms.

Some of the theological elite (i.e. ministers of cultural retreat) have been critical of the reaction of rank and file conservative Christians to Phil Robertson/A&E debacle. They say we should hold our fire defending the duck man; wait for more important battles in the future... 

If the highfalutin types are always retreatin' like the Brits at Dunkirk over matters trivial, from whence cometh the notion they'll all of a sudden be faithful in larger battles that lay ahead? 

They won't I tell you. Because they have neither the courage nor the desire.

Douglas Wilson hits it out of the park here:

Steve Wilkinson on the ErgunCaner Debacle

The Mafia recommends you go read Steve Wilkerson's article on the Ergun Caner debacle:

Peter Hammond on Nelson Mandela

As the world and even a few notable Reformed thinkers mourn and talk of how great a man Nelson Mandela was, we at the Reformed Mafia will not be singing his praises. In fact, we would like to share a couple of videos with you from a brother in South Africa who isn't paying homage to the terrorist.

We hope you will listen to Dr. Hammond's perspective and not fall for the politically correct propaganda:

Ergun Caner Appointment to Brewton Parker College

The Mafia has been laying low for several years, but the recent news that Ergun Caner was selected to lead a Baptist college (which is located not far from where I presently sit) has prompted me to return to the blogosphere for a brief time. It's quite disturbing really to see how so-called men of God are circling the wagons in defense of the indefensible.

It is a matter of fact and public record that Dr. Ergun Caner is an unrepentant, pathological liar who has done much harm to the cause of Christ, especially in regard to the ministries of those trying to reach Islamic people.

Some claim that people like me oppose Caner because of our disagreements over theology. Such is not the case. If this was a merely a difference of opinion over theology, I would be the first to welcome Dr. Caner to our area.

I am posting a video here that needs to be seen by all who care about the truth. You'll want to fast forward to about the 24 minute mark where the presentation begins.

So Long for Now

Well everyone, this is it. The journey has come to an end. There just comes a time when you realize you have too much on your plate. I appreciate everyone who's been a part of this and even those of you who've written against us.

This blog will remain up and Gordan and I will remain co-owners until we decide to recycle it, kill it, or auction it off to the highest bidder.

The only blogging I am doing now is about whips and whipmaking. Come by and see me some time.

I covet your prayers.

Semper Reformanda!

Gordan's Gone

Hey, just a quick note to let you know that I am begging off of blogging for the foreseeable future. Many of you know (more of you don't) that I had a novel published in 2000. Well, I've been bitten by that bug again and now must pursue the path of writing another. I don't have a lot of control over my own creative juices: you've kinda got to go with the flow on these things, I've learned.

But even before I begin to pursue another book-writing, I'm already stacked to the gills with time constraints and ministry responsibilities, so something's got to give. This time, that something is the internet in general, and the blogosphere in particular.

I believe Rhett is going to come on here shortly and make an announcement along similar lines with regard to the status of this blog, so I will simply sign off with the prayer that our great Sovereign may continue to bless you with an ever-increasing knowledge of the truth, as it is found in the face of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Crazy talk? We'll Soon See

Four minutes, listen then comment. Is this crazy talk?
