John MacArthur’s annual Shepherds Conference is in full swing with this this years gathering being called an “Inerrancy Summit”.
There was a time when I would have cared.
I used to faithfully sign up for the online versions of the conference and I bought the recordings of every session.
Those days are over.
While I agree with most, if not all of the doctrine being expounded in these conferences I find it too easy to love the doctrine more than people…and find it too easy to scorn the brethren who don’t agree.
Loving doctrine more than loving people means that you won’t love people who veer (however minimally) from your doctrines.
1 John 2:11 is inerrant too.
Thus, I’ll avoid MacArthur and his echo chamber full of supporters lest I forget.
With my usual flare for hypocrisy, I’ll now hate on some brethren.
The “Christian” press in this country are not a “press” at all, but a bunch of candy ass hirelings.
The only real reporting on abuse in the church is being done by bloggers, not by the paid “journalists”.
If a story gets big enough the hirelings will sanitize and publish it.
They are a fat, gutless, lot who are owned by their advertisers…some of whom they should be investigating rather than profiting from.
If the “Christian Post” was printed on paper, I’d stack it in the bathroom and save on Charmin.
Thank you, I feel better now.
When you see someone on Facebook talking about “cleaning up their friends list” what they’re really saying is “I’m not getting nearly the attention I want from this list”…
Being an “entrepreneur” is a lot like being unemployed with a different title…
