Puritan Board Junior
Hey brother, he’s not going to bind consciences. He‘s going to give people something to think about. I’ve been in legalist circles and when you hyper focus on these things they define you and may consume you. I definitely don’t think he’s endorsing or encouraging many of the things you mention. Aimee’s participation was ok and when she crossed the line, Trueman fell on the right side. Maybe he should be a stronger watchman. But I do believe he’s much more discerning in belief, practice and recommendation than you give him credit for.Any good in him can be found elsewhere. There's a lot to worry about. He has a reputation as a conservative Reformed guy but this is not earned. He is certainly within the broad Reformed camp, but middle of the road. On any controversial issue within Reformed circles- worship, xmas, halloween for example- I've never heard him take the minority position (i.e. the older Reformed view). He sets himself up as a cantankerous critic of modernity, but he has embraced every innovation within the Reformed camp. And he bears a lot of the responsibility for elevating Aimee Byrd to prominence. I'd stay clear.
MoS is not a good source for hardline applications - it’s a whimsical and wise dialogue on current events. I dont like much of the outro music.
