hard-hitting CT

Well… from the department of ‘bet-you-never-thought-you’d-see-this’, Christianity Today calls today calls a spade a (gasp) liberal!!!!

The spade in question is Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and the article in question can be found here.

Pretty amazing. More gutsy than some conservativish evangelicals, too.

    So, is Christianity Today right when it agrees with you, but wrong when it disagrees?

    Personally, it makes no difference to me if Bonhoffer was liberal. I think Trueman’s comments are appropriate — what we need to ask is “what can I learn from him?” not, “was he on my team?”

    Nevertheless, just CT saying it doesn’t make it so — and I don’t dislike CT as much as many. Could it be that Bonhoffer wouldn’t have fit in on either of our North American teams?

    • Now, Keith…

      What I am remarking on is that CT is actually using the term. It is surprising for them to label anyone a liberal.

      I think there is nothing to learn from Bonhoeffer, but that was not the point of my post.

    Ok, I see your point.

    But, seriously, NOTHING to learn from Bonhoffer? Who can you learn from?


    • Well, there is this guy named Paul, and a few other nobodies named Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Peter, James, Jude…

    Well, Keith and Don, we can learn the truth of Scriptures that state, “having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

    Oh, ok guys. Well, then, there’s nothing to learn here. Just me and my KJV.
