Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

SGM-Mahaneygate: C.J. Mahaney Dumped from SEBTS Conference


Danny Akin and Southeastern seminary drops C.J. Mahaney from conference

ImgresApparently Dr. Danny Akin and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary have dropped C.J. Mahaney from the 20/20 Collegiate Conference "EKKLESIA: God's Perspective on the Church."1 We first posted our lament concerning Akin's decision to retain Mahaney in the face of Southern Baptists' 2013 resolution on the sexual abuse of children in a post entitled "Danny Akin and Al Mohler still sponsoring C. J. Mahaney."  
For my part, for whatever reason(s) Dr. Akin decided to withdraw the invitation to Mahaney, we are grateful and commend him and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary for doing so.

Now, if only Dr. Mohler could find the courage to sever all ties between Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and C.J. Mahaney's Pastors' School.

All last week Mohler's friends publicly expressed their admiration for his unflinching courage to do the "right thing" during the "Conservative Resurgence," and to do so even when it was personally hurtful to himself and his family.

We wait to see how Dr. Mohler responds under different circumstances.
