I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Dever Gets it Right

Mark Dever: "It seems to me and others (many who are younger than myself) that this issue of egalitarianism and complementarianism is increasingly acting as the watershed distinguishing those who will accommodate Scripture to culture, and those who will attempt to shape culture by Scripture. You may disagree, but this is our honest concern before God. It is no lack of charity, nor honesty. It is no desire for power or tradition for tradition's sake. It is our sober conclusion from observing the last fifty years"

Dever rocks. I'm reading his "Nine Marks" book now.

Check iMonk's "Little Red Book" post. I think you will get a kick out of a particular descriptor he uses.

I read Dever's "9 Marks" last summer - and ended up underlining almost half the book!

As a complementarian I am sorry to say that I am a small minority among church planters.
