I published a post yesterday responding to attacks on some brothers and sisters who put up a challenging podcast on the topic of women and the church. As of right now, that post has been viewed almost 6,000 times in 24 hours and has been signed by nearly 100 people, most of them PCA pastors (I keep getting requests to sign the post, even even after I closed the comments). I say that not to brag, but to show how broad the support has been for what we said and attested to in that post.
Since we posted, the author of the original blog castigating the podcast and calling for letters to be written to their authorities has been taken down. However, these facts still remain:
- An apology was not issued and the author continues to make his case on social media.
- An email blast campaign was sent out by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals asking recipients to contact the ecclesiastical authorities of the podcast hosts to rebuke them for their errors. That bell cannot be unrung.
- Many people, inflamed by the original post on Mortification of Spin continue make their case on-line.
- As of this moment (4PM, Sunday, April 2) the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals is still hosting a version of the original post, regardless of the fact that it was deleted from Mortification of Spine.
Due to the fact that the author deleted his posts from his blog and has disengaged himself from the podcast hosts, I have closed comments and stopped adding names to my post. However, due to 1-4 above, I will let my post remain up and running with comments and names that were submitted prior to me closing them.
If you have any questions or need further clarification, you may contact me via the information on this website.
Here is a screen shot of the post that is still being hosted by ACE.
