Charismatic Chaos: Response Round-up

Ministry, Theology

This year’s Desiring God Pastor’s conference has caused some conversation, all revolving around the message from Pastor Tope Koleoso entitled Sovereign Grace, Spiritual Gifts, and the Pastor: How Should a Reformed Pastor Be Charismatic? While I have a lot to say, many others have already done so and I’m happy to leave it to them. It was, to say the least, a disappointing display of anti-cessationist argumentation riddled with strawmen – in fact, one of the worst, given that it was on a prominent international stage. Here’s the response round-up that I’ve found helpful:
