Pardon?

Triple D linked (via Google Reader) to an interesting post on Neo-Anabaptists by Kevin DeYoung. (Kevin is probably best-known as the co-author of Why We’re Not Emergent.)

The post seems like a response to Dave Fitch’sThe Gospel Coalition” and Post-Christendom: Will it be a Coalition or an Expedition? Some Reflections and Concerns, though Kevin doesn’t mention Dave.

The line in Kevin’s post that led me to ask the question in the title is this,

…without a manifest glorying in Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice…
[in Point 4 of his five points at the post’s conclusion]

Pardon? (Perhaps I need a CSL course.)

BTW Triple D’s post from today is a must read, Overcoming Pride and Self-reliance in Ministry.

One response to Pardon?

  1. “a manifest glorying” in the cross of Christ is the only thing that sustains my faith. To quote the author of Ecclesiastes…

    “I looked most carefully into everything, searched out all that is done on this earth. And let me tell you, there’s not much to write home about. God hasn’t made it easy for us. I’ve seen it all and it’s nothing but smoke — smoke, and spitting into the wind. Life’s a corkscrew that can’t be straightened, a minus that won’t add up.

    “What I’ve finally concluded is that so-called wisdom and knowledge are mindless and witless — nothing but spitting into the wind. Much learning earns you much trouble. The more you know, the more you hurt.” Ecl 1 – The Message
