Running with the wolves...

You couldn't make this up. A couple days ago Paul Tripp (publicity photo, Mr. Rogers returns as a hipster) announced to the world it was his considered judgment that it was time for Tully Tchividjian to "move on" from his marriage by filing for divorce. He assured us there are unspecified others who agree with him. And then, today, I read an announcement by WillowCreek Church in Winter Park, Florida that they have brought Tully on their ministerial staff as their Director of Ministry Development.

Their web site tells us they are "Reformed," and with good reason...

Their senior pastor, Kevin Labby, recites his superlative Reformed pedigree:

Kevin is a graduate of Grove City College (BA, Political Science), Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and the Department of Leadership Studies at Geneva College (MS, Organizational Leadership). He is now a doctoral student at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando.

Some influential voices in Kevin's life include Martin Luther, John Calvin, Tim Keller, Steve Brown, Tullian Tchividjian, Nancy Pearcey, Steve Childers, R.C. Sproul, Elyse Fitzpatrick, Jerry Bridges, Francis Schaeffer, Robert Farrar Capon, Brennan Manning, Abraham Kuyper, Paul Tripp, and others.

"Abraham Kuyper, Paul Tripp, and others."

Yes, Tim Keller, Tully Tchividjian, and Paul Tripp are the Reformed church of our time and it's no wonder our covenant children convert to Roman Catholicism.
