Martin Downes posts an interview with Ligon Duncan. You can read it here. This paragraph is worth reproducing since we are faced with opposition by those who think they know our position, but do not. Christians are not always good at dealing with criticism. This is valuable advice:

Refuse to take the insults thrown back at you personally. You are a servant of the word. And if a servant, you must be prepared to be treated like a servant. The only thing that matters is the glory of God, the vindication of the word, the upholding of the truth, the faithful proclamation of the Gospel and the good of souls. Let them cast what aspersions they may. You only crave the affirmation of One.
Thanks to Justin Taylor at Between Two Worlds for this link.

1 Corinthians 15:58

58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
