Copy Cat Calvinists
Sometimes…I don’t know what to do about a given situation.
Like the mess I stumbled upon last night…
It has been my habit for many years to listen to some theological teaching at night as I’m falling asleep.
Last night I decided to listen to one of the pillars of the Truly Reformed lecture on “the order of the decrees”.
That’s an in house debate among Calvinists sure to bring on deep sleep quickly.
Unfortunately, as I listened I had the strange feeling I’d heard this lecture before.
To make a long story short, this pillar had stolen large chunks of his lecture word for word from a lesser known but well respected teacher… who I also had on mp3.
Worse yet, he was using the pilfered teaching in a seminary class.
Part of me wants to call out Professor Pillar the Plagiarist…part of me wants to save my strength for more important battles.
I can say that this person has lost the considerable amount of respect I once had for him.
Chuck Smith and Jon Courson have been plagiarized more than anyone I can think of through the years…and it has always irked me no end.
What do you think about plagiarizing preachers?
