"Seek out the society of your boon companions, drink, play, talk bawdy, and amuse yourself. One must sometimes commit a sin out of hate and contempt for the Devil, so as not to give him the chance to make one scrupulous over mere nothings…" –Luther

Brian asked me to post this for him

ADDENDUM – My Challies SGM-related post
A friend drew my attention to the fact that I wasn’t completely fair regarding my post on Tim a few days back, and suggested that my list painted Tim as an unquestioning cheerleader for all things CJ and SGM-related.  My friend highlighted, as one example, Tim’s less-than-positive review of CJ’s Worldliness.  I can also think of situations where Tim has raised flags about the charismatic side of things at SGM.  Thinking through my friend’s point, I wouldn’t want anyone to walk away from my post with the idea that Tim asks zero questions about SGM, or has some kind of sycophantic approach towards SGM.  I see where I wasn’t as nuanced as I should have been, and I apologize.
In summary –
Tim has clarified this to me personally: Tim’s overall point in his caveat = he doesn’t have, and hasn’t had, any formal and/or official ties to SGM and CJ.
I’ve clarified this to Tim personally:  My overall point regarding Tim’s caveat =  Over the years, Tim has highlighted a lot of SGM material on his blog over the years.  Tim’s blog is a very important one in the conservative evangelical blogosphere, and I wish he would have acknowledged in his caveat something to the effect that, while I don’t have any formal or official relationship with CJor SGM, I do realize that, over the years, I’ve highlighted or flagged a lot of CJ/SGM content for my readers.
Again, I apologize for painting Tim as if he’s never questioned anything about CJ or SGM.  That wasn’t my intent, and I should have been more careful.
