Together for the gospel 2012

In 2006, four gifted and prominent leaders of the American Church, Mark Dever of 9 Marks and Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Ligon Duncan of RTS and First Presbyterian Jackson, C. J. Mahaney of Sovereign Grace Ministries, and Albert Mohler, the President of Southern Baptist Seminary got together to create a conference called Together for the Gospel (T4G) to encourage other pastors to stand together for the gospel.The T4G conferences was repeated in 2008, 2010, and this week. The talks are now all available! Check them out! All of these guys are super solid. The Gospel Coalition has videos up from the conference, and you can get it just the audio here

So far, I've only listened to Mark Dever's sermon (I'll start working on them seriously once they are available in podcast. But Dever's sermon is gold . Here are a few quotes.
"Our congregations are made up exclusively of sinners. So as pastors we spend all of our time with sinners, even when we're alone."
"False teaching will bring converts, but false converts. And false converts will hire false teachers." (At that I burst out laughing, and then wanted to put on sackcloth and ashes) 
"He who thinks lightly of sin will think lightly of our Savior." 
"When we get this right [that Christ is our only hope], we offend and attract all the right people."
