Whilst I’ve been outside wandering the non-blog hallways of the world, much has been happening in godblogdom. One of those happenings, for which many purple pixels have been spilled, was a conference in Kentucky where Calvinists and their friends conferred. I think it was called Together for Right Doctrine.
I have a few simple questions for those lustily proclaiming the resurgence of this “right doctrine”. In your communities where you are resurging, are the widows and orphans being cared for, are the prisoners being freed… or at least visited, do the lame walk, do the blind see – I won’t ask about the dead being raised? Is the year of the Lord’s favour being proclaimed?
These are the same questions I have asked a megachurch-leading friend who boasts of baptizing 400 in one month. What has the impact been on your community? Has crime dropped? Are the friendless befriended? The jobless jobbed? You get the drift.
I’m just asking?
