Frank Turk over at the Team Pyro blog has penned an open letter to Michael Horton of White Horse Inn fame, questioning the tendency of the WHI crew to emphasize the “Law and Gospel” distinction to the exclusion of almost everything else. I stopped listening to the White Horse Inn some time ago because I simply grew tired of the “everyone in the church is stoopid and what we need is more Word and Sacrament” as if listening to sermons and nibbling a cracker/sipping a tiny cup of wine is going to fix all of the problem in the church. Frank’s post Open Letter to Michael Horton is sure to draw a spirited response, probably not from Dr. Horton but certainly from his surrogates. I can think of one in particular that is going to have a fit. Much energy will be spent and many keys will be furiously tapped in this debate.
