I’m not sure if you know of Calvary Chapels, but during their recent leaders conference, they had a guest speaker who is a DTS alumni.
Starting around the 6:00 spot, after insinuating all seminaries are moving from having the position of Biblical inerrancy, he calls-out Dr. Wallace specifically, giving an example that didn’t makes sense to me.
When I went through the Theology Program and sometimes during your unplugged series, you (Michael) mentioned Dr. Wallace.
Thanks for the link to the ccspc15. I watched David Farnell’s video and downloaded his powerpoint. I attended Calvary Costa Mesa from 1972-76. I moved to Ogden Ut and started Calvary Chapel Ogden in association with Calvary Chapel of Salt Lake. I currently live in Edmond OK. My first impression of David Farnell is that he has another agenda. I find it hard to fathom that Chuck Smith would allow a professor from Master’s Seminary to speak to a senior pastor’s conference, especially since the release of “Strange Fire” by John MacArthur. I also thought it strange and perhaps unfair the way he mentioned Dr Wallace. If you go to the ETS website ( http://www.etsjets.org/ ) you will find that they require for membership that you hold to the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy. You will also find that Daniel Wallace is the current president of ETS. It is my “OPED” that David Farnell has an ax to grind.

Your blog article: “Is There Such Thing as a Gay Christian?” is the best discussion I’ve read on this topic. It is refreshing to hear someone who understands grace and responsibility.
I work two FT jobs and have three teenagers so I don’t have time to read blogs, but I’ve signed up for yours.
May the Lord continue to bless your ministry and work in and through you.

Thank you so much for your kind words and thank you for laboring in the kingdom out there in Spokane 🙂 If there’s anything we can do for you please let us know.
Hey, with the ongoing Kentucky saga, certainly interested on your insights about a Christian in the world performing secular tasks that may violate God’s law.
We know of the stories of Shadrach, Meshach, and Ab-nego, and also of Daniel not worshiping false Gods. That is a clear commandment. But what about when God says marriage is between a man and a woman, does issuing a marriage license as a clerk violate God’s law? Or assisting with a homosexual couple to adopt a child? Or being a nurse in the operating room for a medical procedure to abort a child?
