Apprising Ministries continues calling out what appears to be an emerging ecumenical magisterium growing up around the ill-fated Elephant Room of seriously drifting James MacDonald and New Calvinist Mark Driscoll.

Sadly, there’s a progressive New Downgrade No-Controversy going on within broader evangelicalism; and, like the proverbial frog slowly boiling to death in a pot, over the past couple of decades people simply haven’t noticed.

Now ask yourself: If this is true, what does it say e.g. about men like former SBC president Dr. Jack Graham who proudly endorse Steven Furtick:
