July 18, 2017 Resources: Thinking Well; Elitism; Costly Believism; Stretchy Pants; Common Myths

by Jonathan Hamilton

David DeBruyn has been putting together a fantastic series that is nearly concluded.
These two recent posts are especially helpful:

When we talk about “right thinking” as Christians, what do we mean?
And on a related note:
How do we respond to the idea that robust thinking is nothing more than “elitism”?

The alternative to a Gospel presentation that is guilty of propagating “easy believism” looks something like this.

When I see obviously ridiculous behavior passed off as legitimate worship practice by those who purport to be sane Christians, I usually want to throw an epic tantrum on facebook. Tim Keller having a bunch of dudes in tights performing “liturgical dance” at his church gets me in such a mood. But occasionally wiser, cooler heads respond in wisdom and grace, and I take a deep breath and walk away. (But don’t get me wrong…..there’s still a place and time for a Doug Wilson or Carl Trueman flavored response to such frivolity).

We’ve been talking about apologetics and evangelism quite a bit lately at my church. Here are some common myths about early Christianity.
