For those of you who are not aware, some severe charges have been leveled against C.J. Mahaney. These charges can be summed up in one word: pride. Tim Challies has written a helpful reflection on the situation and how Christians should respond.  Ligon Duncan also pens his reflection and he includes some links that will help you catch up on the story.

My only thought is personal: I am asking the Lord to keep me from any appearance of pride, specifically a resistance in my heart to correction and rebuke. I have been deeply troubled by these sins in my life because they are present and real (as my wife can attest). By grace I am seeking to put them to death.

I cannot do it on my own. Neither can C.J. Great grace is required. Thankfully, in Christ and his gospel, great grace is provided–to me, C.J., and anyone who would believe. Let’s be praying for C.J., Sovereign Grace Ministries, and our own hearts.

  1. What a shame that Mahaney has gone back preaching so soon even when he was suppose to be in a “season” of reflection. Sad that Mahaney hasn’t practiced what he has preached.

  2. I am sure you aware now that Covenant Life Church (SGM’s “flagship” church) has decided to leave SGM. Also, Mahaney ran from where CLC was and moved SGM headquarters to Louisville KY. Sad that Mahaney could teach on submitting to local leaders but not practice it.
