Adrian Warnock posts an excerpt of Martyn Lloyd-Jones speaking on two faulty postures toward knowledge that bypasses the person of Jesus Christ. One posture is doctrinal laziness, and the other posture gaining knowledge for it’s own sake, which leads Lloyd-Jones to object to tests and degrees in theology.

Tim Keller, Don Carson and John Piper discuss ministry and the Gospel in a 1 hour video recorded at the 2008 Gospel Coalition Leadership Meeting. A phenomenal video. Keller and Piper discuss how mercy ministries to the world can be effective outreach opportunities. Keller describes how his approach to preaching the Gospel by deconstructing legalism to a libertine culture effectively removes major barriers to the Gospel. Keller also describes a difficulty in finding pastoral staff who have strong theology, a serious moral trembling, and an experimental heart passion for the person of Christ. Piper asks Tim to explain Gospel-centeredness, and then raises a question of how a man addicted to pornography can successfully see victory over that sin via a Gospel-centeredness. Then Carson asks John to explain how God is not a megalomanic by demanding worship and seeking glory.
