connecting theology and life in gospel-centred ways to the glory of God and our joy in Him
Ok, there are some who read this blog and may be thinking I’ve gone all ‘Mark Driscoll Groupie’ – this accusation is probably half true.
I was recently made aware that quite a number of Christians are beginning to get a little upset at bloggers. Particularly in the wake of Mark Driscoll’s arrival in Australia there were a number of bloggers, ‘Christian blogs’ and bloggers who are Christian (there is a slight difference), who raised concerns and vocalised criticisms. Being a blogger myself I’m aware of the danger one can get into regarding being misunderstood or writing something which stems from ungodliness on my part.
So it comes as no surprise to hear that people are getting fed up with reactionist bloggers. Even some of the blogs I read regularly (and promote via my blog roll down the right hand side) have come under fire for being too critical, defensive and…well…reactionistic.
So I found Philip Jensen’s latest post from St Andrew’s Cathedral, Sydney, to be both enlightening, fair, balanced and humble. He lists three points to reflect upon when considering Driscoll’s recent visit (and I think his comments apply very generally to anything we hear from a visiting/overseas guest speaker).
You can find Philip’s post here.
I’d like to add to that list for the bloggers who may be reading this and are blogging themselves:
And as always, happy blogging :)
