That Awkward Moment

When I read something on the occasionally interesting The Gospel Coalition website, realize it's Kevin DeYoung, and stop reading. Not only is he comically anti-Catholic, but he is the epitome of tribalism, theological truncation, and oversimplification. Seriously. I would read Karl Barth backwards in French before I even thought about reading a book by DeYoung. I'd read Tillich. I'd read almost anything else.

I had a hard time leaving Reformed theology. I truly did. But he would have inspired me to leave faster.

The fact that he's a leader in this New Calvinism is tragic. I'm sorry. But not.
