    There is no greater evangelical mythology than that which has sprung up around Keith Green.

    Emphasis on the word “myth”.

    I will pass on making any comments around any Keith Green discussion. I have nothing against him, but some of his followers(?)….kinda rubbed me the wrong way when I got saved. Turned me off to his music ever since. Its my problem and no one elses…. 🙁

    I teach from my iPad…it has a black cover on it so it looks like my ESV Study Bible after liposuction.

    Carl Trueman on the Ted Haggard article;

    “Given that religion here is often just a branch of the entertainment industry, and church leadership is all about celebrity and public performance, over-repenting is surely just one more vital part of that ecclesiastical repertoire: over-acting.”

    Carl is very astute…

    Keith and Melody were close friends of ours. They stayed at our house for weeks when they traveled the N.W. on concert tours. We visited them in SoCal several times.

    They nearly moved Last Days to Oregon instead of Texas….

    Perhaps things would have turned out differently if they had.
    God is Sovereign.

    To this day, I cannot listen to Keith’s music without tears.

    His death was tragic and avoidable. Several presumptuous decisions led to the crash.
    I clearly remember the phone call I received from a friend in Texan with news of the crash and my numb, dry mouthed and breath taking reaction the information.

    Keith was a formidable talent. Barry McGuire called him a “heavy roller”… He was eccentric and persuasive. I often wonder what he would be like today, if he were still alive, conditioned by life and hardships at age 56. His death certainly devastated his wife and remaining daughters (one of whom wasn’t even born at the time) and many friends,
    not to mention the extended family of the Smalley family who also died in the crash.

    I have been told that many times…
