Blog of the Week: A Sure Foundation
Blog of the week goes out to Harry over at Harry’s Heresy Blog. Their Harry makes the conservative case for the necessity of building Christians on a sure foundation; that foundation being the Word of God and right teaching. It is a pastorally sensitive post:
As one can tell, I hold to a very high standard of scripture as did Jesus and Paul. Jesus used scripture to rebuke Satan’s temptation (Matthew 4: 3-4, quoting from Deuteronomy 6:16) that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. In (Matt 19:1-6) in response to the Pharisee’s question on divorce, Jesus goes back to (Gen 1:27)…
Theology After Google
Florin over at Theological Perspectives writes an interesting article making the case for the demise of the “expert”. She writes:

Emerging Church is Dead(?)
Matthew over at Mere Orthodoxy tells the story of Jeremy, an “Emergent” who is growing disenchanted with the “Emergent Church”. I find this to be ironic because the Emergent Church is supposed to be a safe haven for people who are disenchanted with the institutional church (here is a blog, quoting a blog, quoting a blog. Sorry):
At any rate, Ben Simpson (whose blog I have been enjoying of late) pointed me this afternoon to this promise to take-down the emerging church by Jeremy Bouma, a 29-year-old participant in the movement who has grown a bit disenchanted with it. Jeremy’s only one person, of course. But he is an insider, and he’s not exactly going to hold back.
That is all for today. Enjoy.
