John MacArthur’s Strange Fire conference stirred up quite a bit of debate and controversy over the weekend. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, a quick Twitter search should do the trick. I’m sure the #strangefire hashtag is still going relatively strong. Now, the downside to the internet is that much of this debate and controversy is public. On the other hand, the upside to the internet is that much of this debate and controversy is public.
So, for my own reading and study purposes, I’ve put together a collection of links to all things Strange Fire. If you’re interested in following the discussion or doing some personal study and exploring the topic on your own, then check out the list. You’ll find material from both the cessationist and continuationist standpoints. This is a running list and I will continue to add to it until I get bored or all the bloggers move on.
Finally, before you dive in, hear Thabiti Anyabwile’s wise counsel:
So, whether you’ve watched the live feeds or not, whether you’ve read multiple volumes on the debate or not, I hope you care about these things. I hope you’re following with careful concern to know the truth rather than to vindicate your party. I hope you’re listening with rapt attention because you’re eager to hear God’s voice more clearly and to walk with your Savior more closely. Even the thoughts of folks who get some things wrong can help us to do that if we’re discerning and humble beneath God’s word.
