Following on from the recent Strange Fire conference and the discussion/debate that has ensued I came across an article from the Internet Monk website via an article on Adrian Warnock’s blog regarding a forthcoming radio program that he will be on with Phil Johnson and Sam Storms regrading the Strange Fire conference.
The article that I came across was posted in the comments section of Adrian Warnock’s post about the radio program he is taking part of and reflects on something else that John MacArthur said during the conference which was..
There is a stream of sound teaching, sound doctrine, sound theology, that runs all the way back to the Apostles. It runs through Athanasius and Augustine, through Luther and Calvin, the great Reformation and Reformers, and the Puritans, and everything seems so clear to them. Through the Westminster divines and the pathway of Spurgeon and David Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and S. Lewis Johnson, and Jim Boice, and to R. C. Sproul. That’s the stream of sound doctrine. The heroes of this generation are people in that stream. We know who they are. You’ve been hearing about them this week. We go back to John Rogers, and the 288 Marian martyrs. Those are our heroes.
– John MacArthur
Strange Fire – “A Call to Respond”
I don’t intend to repost the whole article, but recommend that you head over to Internet Monk’s article ‘There Is No Narrow, Pure Stream‘ and have a read for yourself.
