Paragraphs and Points

Is Becoming a Christian Intellectual Suicide?” (Link Fixed) I think Mark Dever’s survey of Christian intellectuals in most every intellectual field, historical and contemporary, answers the question pretty definitively.

This article from Dr. Danny Akin, Pres. Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, is more than a paragraph and it’s worth the read for all those interested in the recent internet scuffle caused by the recent “A Statement of the Traditional Southern Baptist Understanding of God’s Plan of Salvation.”  Great balance and tone.  More of that would be nice.

Forward Progress thinks that being filled with the Holy Spirit might just be boring.  I agree:

“…being boring might be one of the greatest cultural sins of our time. As people who are constantly entertained and amused, it is baffling for us, even as Christians, to think that being filled with the Spirit of God might not result in something amazing and mystical in appearance.”

Dalmond Bodden: “All talk and no walk won’t make you worthy; it only makes you wordy.”  True.
