Standing Against The Ecumenical Monoculture

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines Of never failing skill He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head.

Judge not the LORD by feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence, He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flow’r.

Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan his work in vain; GOD is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain.

--William Cowper

A Brief Respite from Finals Week

This is the last week of class at TMS and next week is finals week so I do not have time to post much. However, I thought I would pass along an interesting post from the Logos Bible Software Blog entitled Smokers Drive Up Costs of Bibles the article is both interesting and contains a very humorous photo, enjoy. I would also recommend that you go to Mark Driscoll's blog and watch The Banned Church Planting Video it is only eight minutes and worth the time.

Keith -

I watched that video yesterday. I agreed with everything that was said. However, I'm curious about what you (and others) think about the manner in which he said these things. Personally, I found some of his comments a bit off color. I think we can teach about biblical truth apart from using crude language (i.e. "banging his girlfriend"). Is this acceptable for Christians to be so flippant with their speech? What about Matt. 12:36; Eph. 4:29; Col. 3:8. Just food for thought. Overall, I appreciate the principles Driscoll gave in that video.

Chase I definitely agree. I am very thankful that he has matured beyond the "Mark the cursing pastor" stage and I think he has realized the error of that past error. However I do think he could phrase things better and when reading his books there have definitely been points where I would phrase things differently.

I have downloaded his series on Song of Soloman as I was interested to hear how he preached it.
