Challies on Churchy Drama

Maybe you've heard of the drama with Sovereign Grace Ministries.  Maybe you haven't.  Maybe you've never even heard of Sovereign Grace Ministries.  Suffice to say, there be drama.  And where there is drama, there is internet chatter.  And while mostly I like to avoid drama and also chatter, which is often a euphemism for gossip, I did stumble across this piece by Tim Challies that offers a thoughtful biblical perspective not just on the SGM situation, but on the issues surrounding conflict between Christians in a cyber era.

Even if you're unfamiliar with the particulars of this case, it's worth a read for its sober and methodical discussion on reacting biblically in major conflicts.

Below is an excerpt; read the rest here.

"Here are the kinds of questions I have been asking myself: What are we to think about a wikileaks-style revelation in the Christian world? When a document like this one surfaces, how are you and I to react? Is it public—something we can and perhaps ought to read? Is it private—something we should  deliberately avoid? What does the Bible say about wikileaks?"
