Staying Silent About a False Gospel

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. That's the approach many evangelicals take in the face of the gospel compromise of their college buddies, their co-belligerents, or their denominational colleagues. (And for those who think, "I'm a fundamentalist, not an evangelical," I'm talking to you too.)

Tom Ascol of Founders Ministries is not one of those evangelicals. I find more that's interesting to read and essential to the gospel on his blog than on any other, and he takes a lot of pot shots for doing it. Two recent posts responding to the audacious claims of one prominent modern evangelist are fascinating. Here's the first. Here's the second.

amazing, man.
i'm not sure which is a greater problem- staying silent about a false gospel or staying silent about the true one...

True enough. I think we fail in both because we esteem our own status and persona more than we value things above.
