The Death of a Reformed Evanglical Giant

As I was getting ready to start a turnaround last month, I heard about the death of D. James Kennedy. I was surprised by the news and deeply saddened also. Rev. Kennedy was greatly used of God in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

D. James Kennedy will be missed. He was a wonderful preacher and a solid Reformed pastor. Hew was the most famous pastor in a relatively small denomination the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). Which is the same denomination that I have been a member of since discovering the Reformed faith a little over twenty years ago.

Kennedy was a Calvinist and strongly evangelical. That is very good and much need combination in today's "Evangelical" circles. He stands coram Deo but now he can see the very face of God and even see the wounds that Christ received in His body to save D. James Kennedy and the rest of us from our sins.

Coram Deo,
