Joe,

I am certainly glad to have you back, to lighten up the blogging load for me! And there are other reasons of course as well. It will especially help this weekend as I’ll be away at the retreat, hopefully you can pick me up a little!

Anyway, Vern Poythress writes on whether today’s evangelicals have room for the wrath of God in their thinking. It is a bit long but worth the read. His conclusions are,

“First, we repeatedly confront the danger of compromising the Christian faith in an effort to match the cultural norms of tolerance and civility. Second, we are in danger of muting the note of judgment and wrath in the Christian message, because that note is not only unpopular but not tolerated. Third, biblical Christianity is deeply offensive to mainstream modern culture, and we might as well get over as quickly as possible the idea that we can make it palatable.”

Now that you know the conclusions I guess you don’t have to read the article. But I think his biblical reflections are worth the time!

Larry
