Statement on Social Justice & the Gospel Released
As I blogged about a few weeks ago, a growing chorus of conservative evangelicals are voicing concerns about where recent evangelical “social gospel” movements are headed. Recently, a group of such concerned evangelical leaders, including John MacArthur, Voddie Baucham, James White, Phil Johnson, Tom Ascol, and others gathered in Dallas and composed an official statement of affirmations and denials expressing the core of those concerns. That statement was just released: The Social Justice & the Gospel | For The Sake of Christ & His Church
