Roberts on Denominations

Pastor Mark Roberts of Irvine Presbyterian Church in California has written a good series of posts on denominations. Yes, I realize that's a dirty word for some, but it doesn't have to be. Roberts is pastor of a church in the Presbyterian Church USA, and many have asked him if, as a result of recent decisions, they would be leaving. He hasn't given a definite response yet, but did do some thinking and writing on the subject of denominations. They're all worth a read - a good defense of denominations. You can read them here. I highly recommend them.
