Even if we don't agree with his approach or answers - credit must be given for the new approach in honesty and openness.
I had a good question since posting this from an Anonymous reader. What don't I agree with? Dave made a comment about apostles -
"That is one reason why we have refrained from using the term "apostle" for those who serve as Sovereign Grace Ministries regional representatives to our churches - see, as our understanding of polity has matured, we have become cautious of conveying any type of authority to SGM leaders that no one has today - an authority that is reserved for the first generation apostles. See - authority is never in a man, it's in the Word of God".
I think it's disappointing Harvey seems again to have adopted the pragmatic approach of tailoring theology to match experience. They've become scared of potential abuses by using the term "apostles" so they have abandoned the term and the post. By refusing to use the term - SGM deprive themselves of the benefit of true biblical apostles as say - Terry Virgo would define it.
Authority may be in the Word of God - but surely the Word of God makes space for giving biblical authority to men?
