Here’s a possible application of James 1.20: Having prominant pastors on the radio sounding like they could work for the FoxNews network does not accomplish the righteosness of God.
This morning I listened briefly to a snippet about what’s hopeful and worrisome in Evangelicalism. I thought the point made was intriguing that the younger evangelicals are typically optimistic and the baby boomers are pessemist about the future of the Gospel. I must say I agree with this. But I would add that, in my own denomination, it is hanging out with the younger presbyters that makes me real optimistic about the future of the PCA. We have truly great potential.
Ugh. For some reason I could not sleep last night. Instead of getting up early to finish a Bible Study prep this morning, I finished it last night (or rather, this morning). If I was, say, single and/or childless, this would have worked great. But, of course, I still had to get up early this morning to get the children ready for school.
