Thanks for collecting these Brian. I think it’s interesting to see essentially the same claim about Reformed types in Evans’s article that Roger Olson was making (about whoever he was talking about; he didn’t say) in the article you linked to last week.
I think it’s a fair claim that some young Reformed types (or whatever you want to call them; is John Piper still young?) unfairly claim that the Bible says exactly what they say it says. I’m not sure this is strictly speaking fundamentalism, although fundamentalists often play the same game.
That being said, I don’t know that the response I think I’m seeing in both articles (something like “you’ve got your interpretation; I’ve got mine”) is a helpful response. Certainly there are better and worse interpretations of Scripture.
Thanks for sharing the piece by Denise Spencer. It is very touching.
Thanks, Esther! I hope you and Matt are doing well.
Thanks Brian. It’s been a little rocky lately but we are praying to see God’s goodness in the midst of circumstances. I hope you are well.
