Mark Driscoll 2.0?

Introduction And so it was that Jordan Peterson said the thing that the reformed movement was trying to avoid, and lo, they pretty much pretended he was a right wing nut job. And it might be much to their peril. Three things have come together times rather closely together and Peterson was the emulsifier forContinue reading “Mark Driscoll 2.0?”

Writers Block Grab Bag

Introduction One would think that after being trapped in nature for two solid weeks there would be much to talk about. Instead, I’ve really got nothing, but the commitment to try and post every Tuesday and Friday. As a result I am going to mention three things that piqued my interest over the weekend theContinue reading “Writers Block Grab Bag”

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

I love it when Kevin DeYoung lets his snark out. I have nothing to say today other than if you can listen to the audio version read by DeYoung do that over just reading it. https://wng.org/opinions/we-live-in-confusing-times-1648558031 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/life-and-books-and-everything/id1526483896?i=1000556152736 I wish I could write this well. Bravo Kevin. Bravo. 

How Does This Keep Happening?

And even though this actual road to Hell is paved with good intention an unintended consequence is that in many churches today sin can not even be clearlyContinue reading “There are Other Categories”

The Stories He Tells Part 3

Introduction* I really respected Kevin DeYoung’s position that it would be best to wait until the conclusion of Mike Cosper’s Rise and Fall of Mars Hill before he rendered judgement. I spent a lot of time pondering DeYoung’s thinking. He sees Cosper has having a broad story to tell and upon completion stepping back toContinue reading “The Stories He Tells Part 3”

Proverbs 31 2.0

This is an annual update of a post I wrote last year around this time, which can be found here, if you have any interest. A good bit has been rewritten to include new material as my wife continues to do such an excellent job of exemplifying this passage. And as I said last yearContinue reading “Proverbs 31 2.0”

The New Seashells

I seriously considered taking a calm well balanced approach to this article: Alas, the best I can muster is an Ed Byrne shrill Irish, “Are you high?!!” I don’t know wether to be more appalled by the authors ignorance of Edwards or of his on fall into a fresh pagan legalism. Either way it allContinue reading “The New Seashells”
