Are There Any Out There?

I have been wondering if there are any men out there today like the previously mentioned reformers. I say reformers because they came up against the Popish system and challenged it head-on. The only one that I can of at the moment is John MacArthur. To me he is a beacon in the shadowy church.
Do you think that God is going to raise up others that will come against the tide of seeker-sensitive, emergent, compromising, prosperity, etertainment-filled preaching? It grieves me that we don't have a Martin Luther who is willing to stay within his denomination or group and call them back to it's moorings. It is a shame that we don't have a John Knox that will blast those who twist scripture into a monstrosity. It is sad that we don't have preachers like John Calvin who rightly could be called theologians. Now a theologian is someone who rights a lot of books on theology.
We need reformers. We need people that will stand up for truth despite the winds that blow against them. Remember, truth is always truth even when everyone says it's false.

There are others than MacArthur on the contemporary scene. Well known men in a similar mold include J. I. Packer, R. C. Sproul, John Piper, C. J. Mahaney, Josh Harris and Mark Dever.
