Aaron Ren has released an episode of his podcast, The Masculinist, with critical insights for those interested in learning lessons for today from church history. The focus of the episode is the battle for conservative theology within the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.
The quote in the title of this post can be found around the 12:41 mark in the episode. You can listen to it on your podcast app or stream it here.
Randy Davis, President and executive director, Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, writing for The Baptist and Reflector:
Let’s make one thing clear from the outset: There is absolutely no denominational hierarchy when it comes to the Southern Baptist Convention… If we allow drift from this benchmark polity, the damage will be extremely significant and invite grave consequences.
Neil Shenvi recently appeared on The Missions Podcast to talk about a host of issues. From the podcast’s website:
Social justice. Critical theory. Post-colonialism. Intersectionality. These issues have divided believers and unbelievers alike in the church over the last few years, and in 2020 the issue is impossible to escape. Is conservative evangelicalism beginning to compromise biblical teaching on complex social issues? And if so, what effect does that have on missions?

On Episode 13 of The CR:V Podcast we are talking with the authors of the new book The Pop Culture Parent – Dr. Ted Turnau, E. Stephen Burnett, and SBC Pastor Jared Moore about their Christian approach to pop culture and how it serves the purpose of making disciples of Jesus Christ.
The following was published initially on Twitterhere.
That phrase – “…we’ve never known before” frustrates me deeply. Let me start here: Ray & I, as best I can tell from his tweets, see Christian faithfulness in 2020 in profoundly different & significant ways. I do, however, think he is a brother and I want to respect our common confession of faith & him as an older believer to the greatest degree I can. So, my frustrations: This newly discovered, high-minded, third-way-is-faithfulness approach that Ortlund is praising (and that shows up the writings of The Gospel Coalition, David French, Thomas Kidd, etc. – to name some recent examples) is particularly exhausting for those of us in the evangelical camp who were saying we were politically homeless years and years and years ago.
On Episode 12 of The CR:V Podcast Jeff Wright speaks with Dr. Owen Strachan about the State of Masculinity in Evangelicalism. The conversation touches on a wide range of subjects: how the church can encourage authentic masculinity, where to look in Christian intellectual tradition for resources, and how Christians should think of cultural voices like Jordan Peterson, Joe Rogan, and Ben Shapiro.
