Prewrath Pastors Gathering at John MacArthur’s Shepherds’ Conference Summit, Feb 28–March 3

I am aware that there are prewrath pastors that attend annually John MacArthur’s Shepherds’ Conference Summit. This year’s Summit is at the end of the month, Feb 28–March 3. I am willing to connect these prewrath pastors together so they can meet up at the Summit this year. I will not be there, but if […]

How Far Can You Go and Still Be Able to Repent? A Plea to John MacArthur
