  1. Landon, I appreciate the stance you are taking and the direction in which you are moving your ministry. I only recently stumbled across your blog, in large part due to the KSP incident, but I am impressed with the shift you are taking (not compromise, but course correction). I do appreciate and am thankful for certain hard-core discernment bloggers, but I am also greatly troubled by others at times. I believe that there is a biblical balance that must be found, but more than that, I believe that the local church, by means of the preached Word, is God’s designed agent for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness. Discernment ministry divorced from local church ministry can be confusing, dangerous, and sadly it can often be counterproductive. I am always reminded of Peter’s exhortation for elders to”shepherd the flock of God that is among you,” meaning that a pastor’s main energies need to be focused on what his local congregation believes and practices. When a pastor’s focus is on not on his own congregation, then his discernment and correction ministry will be divorced from pastoral sensitivity. In that same passage Paul urges pastors not to be “domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.” Having been in pastoral ministry for some years now, I am in love with my flock, and that guides my discernment and any correction I may have to dish out, it causes me to speak the unbreakable truth in unquestionable love. I pray that you will be encouraged by God’s Spirit and that you will continue to submit your local church elders, mean that God has placed over you, and in doing so that you will continue to contend for the faith in a more robust and healthy way. Grace and peace.

    1. I had this great, lengthy response planned…I actually was thinking about it as I laid in bed last night after having listened to this latest podcast. It was going to be articulate, poetic and biblically intellegent…an amazing comment that would garner the most likes of any comment on any website…ever. it was, as the world loves to say, going to “break the internet”. Then Steve had to come along and give his post. So…as for my comment… I am forced to say “see above”. Great comment Steve. Landon, please forgive the harshness of some of my earlier posts. While peppered with compliments I feel my own fire for discernment has recently taken me a tad over the edge as well. You are truly on track now…and are setting others on a greater track as well. Thank you. My wife also thanks you. We listened to your podcast together (my second time yesterday ) and when you talked about how that spirit of discernment can be too hot she basically pointed at me and said “that’s you!”. You are dead on with your assessment of yourself, others of like mind, and the need to be in the strong fold of a good church and good men of God. We are called to that. Well done, Landon.
