The False Gospel associated with Assuming the Worst more
“ A single reason conversations about difficult topics like social justice tend to generate more high temperature than light, both within and beyond the chapel, is a phenomenon we may contact ‘ the Newman Impact. ‘” Thaddeus Williams explains the phenomenon and its significance.
“ I am, by nature, something of a worrier. In fact , I am the grand son of a worrier, who had a very worried son, who has passed that tendency on to me and which I have nobly engendered in my youngster. Four generations of Kneale worry and counting. Informing us to just stop worrying doesn’t really help. It really is sometimes impossible – especially last thing at night – to turn the worries off. ”

What he does not understand is that the issue associated with transgenderism has evolved substantially over the past five years. Biden has adopted a policy that is not only radically incoherent yet that will have profound effects on both the military as well as the American people. ” (See also Rod Dreher’ h The Tyranny Of Technology & Trans. )

Are you a sinner? I rather suspect you are. Hence you may benefit from this open letter, written for people like you (and me).
Flashback: How Evangelism Is certainly Kind of Like Fishing
Sharing the gospel is all about more than just learning and reciting a generic gospel display. It’s about knowing individuals and loving people—about caring them enough to get to know them.
We can’t separate the home life from our Christian life without missing something that is critical to our fellowship with God and our effectiveness to His mission on the planet. —Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth
