dividing & conquering

Susie is headed to Washington D.C. with Sage for the week, so I'm juggling the other three, pastoral and sermon prep responsibilities. Should be interesting . . . . appreciate your prayers.

A week from now, our 5 pastors and two pastoral ministry assistants (Ben and Matt) are heading out the Gospel Coalition Pastor's Conference in Chicago. It will be the only pastors conference that all of us have had the opportunity to attend together. Can't wait! It's going to be great time of connection, instruction and fun. Matt has even arranged for us to catch a Cubs game. Most of us will be staying with some of Susie's relatives, but Pastor Al will be staying with his folks (both Al and Susie grew up in the suburbs of Chicago.)

Tim Keller, John Piper and D.A. Carson are all part of the speaking line-up. To give you a taste of these guys and what we'll be experiencing here is a conversation between them where they are discussing one of my very favorite topics. . . deconstructing legalism . . .

To listen to the entire 10 part conversation (this is part 4), GO HERE.

Pastor Tim,

I watched several of the videos – good stuff! I wonder if you would post something that would assist us sheep in “deconstructing legalism.” From a practical standpoint, in speaking 1-2-1 with a Mormon, how would you deconstruct Mormonism? In sort of a step-by-step manner, how do you do it?
