Mark Dever has been having some dialogue with Fundamentalists with regard to what it means to be "Together for the Gospel." See the 9 Marks "Forum on Fundamentalism."
Thanks to Jamie H. for also sending me this link to the June 14 post by Dever on the 9Marks blog: "Mark Dever doesn't practice separation?" Dever ends with this statement and question:
To sum it up, I want my separation from the world to be more pronounced than my separation from other Christians. Does this make sense?
I think the Fundamentalist brothers are asking some good questions, however. Will the resurgence of "Calvinism" or even "church discipline" be merely "the next big thing" in neo-evangelicalism in the same way "innerancy" was in the 1970s? Will agreement on soteriology or ecclesiology alone be enough to keep the evangelical church from sliding into compromise?
