TGC on the Mars Hill Postmortem

Following on from the last post I see that TGC has their 4 points of Mars Hill Postmortem, over here: http://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/trevinwax/2014/10/16/the-mars-hill-postmortem/

Their fourth point is rough­ly the point I was mak­ing in a cliff note form. I do encour­age you to read their first three points though. But per­haps most poignant in there are these quotes from Tim Keller and John Stott:

Tim Keller describes a “gospel-based min­istry” not mere­ly in terms of doc­tri­nal cor­rect­ness but as being “marked by lov­ing hon­esty, not spin, image, and flat­tery.”

Likewise, John Stott writes: The Christian min­is­ter should be pre­oc­cu­pied with the people’s spir­i­tu­al progress and care noth­ing for his own pres­tige. 

I high­ly encour­age read­ing the whole thing.
