You might find the following blogs of interest about C.J. Mahaney and the group he leads, Sovereign Grace Ministries:

They tell another side. Hope this helps.


As I've said before on my blog when concern about SGM has come up--I am familiar with the criticisms of SGM churches and am sure there are some abuses and difficulties that partially stem from their polity, as there are in all churches with fallen men leading them.

But I have been truly impressed and helped by what I've seen in SGM pastors and churches. I am friends with 3 different SGM pastors and they are a special group of humble, teachable, godly people with healthy churches.

I am sure you mean well and are trying to head people off from danger, so I will leave your comment here for now, but I would appreciate it if you did not use my blog as a platform for your criticisms--especially on posts that have little to do with the things you are concerned about. This was a post about small talk being profitable.
