With how Jonathan Leeman Writes about Biblical Conversion the Question Must be Asked, Does the Editor from 9 Marks Believe C.J. Mahaney Is a Christian?

One of the most read articles at the 9 Marks website deals with churches who do church discipline wrong. One point in Jonathan Leeman’s article led to a question at The Wondering Eagle. With how the 9 Marks editor describes Biblical conversion the question must be asked, is C.J. Mahaney a Christian? Especially in light of how he has continually fled?

An Overview of McLean Bible’s Townhall Meeting; Plus is McLean Bible Controlling the Question Process?

An overview of McLean Bible’s town hall meeting on September 21, 2017. It was a question and answer session where people could submit questions to David Platt and the leaders of the Elder Board.
