and for his next trick Lig Duncan will turn an apple into an orange: Yes, we really are Together for the Gospel

It is ok to be "Together for the Gospel" with people who will not allow you to receive communion with them but it is not possible to be "Together for the Gospel" with people who support women as equals and women in ordained ministry.

Watch those hands carefully, this should be interesting to watch. Look particularly for the things that don’t get mentioned. Like opening up about all those people it is not ok to be together for the gospel with even though they are would be delighted to open their communion table.

    On a quick first reading, it seems to me that the default position is this: the Gospel has to be equated with the T4G doctrinal stance. You can disagree within that framework, but woe betide you if you fall outside. On that basis, my egalitarianism completely negates my wholehearted commitment to justification by grace through faith. Not much power in a Gospel like that, is there, if it can be defeated that easily? Perhaps I’m over-reacting, but the point I make is serious. Has the Gospel become a series of (Calvinist?) propositions, rather than a life-changing encounter with the risen Christ?

    I think that they would claim that you can’t have a life-changing encounter with the risen Christ unless you do accept their propositions.
    I think your egalitarianism would be evidence that you have not fully converted. There is no answer for it, really.
