Doctrines Under Duress in Post-Modern Era |

TBC Staff

"We live and minister in an anti-doctrinal age or at least an age that thinks that it's anti-doctrinal. We live and minister in an age which is anti-theological or at least it claims it's anti-theological....we need to look to the Scriptures to learn how doctrine [is] essential for faithful pastoral ministry if we are going to effectively respond to the anti-doctrinal, anti-theological spirit of the age....the very ideas of doctrine, theology and systematic theology are under great duress in our own time."

(Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III, Senior minister of First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, Mississippi, speaking at T4G (Together for the Gospel) conference, April 15-18, 2008).

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews:4:12).
