Another Baptist school to surrender?

May 19, 2017

Alabama Baptist Convention affiliated Samford University is set to recognize a gay-straight student alliance Samford Together at the recommendation of students and faculty. While not full advocacy of the gay agenda, such an action certainly mutes voices of opposition to the gay lifestyle. Read about the impending vote here. Sanford is home to Beeson Divinity School and is the alma mater of Southern’s R. Albert Mohler. Hopefully Alabama Baptists will act decisively and sever its ties if the school sanctions this alliance.

Just a few rocks, please!

My friend Andrew Snelling, an Aussie geologist and Bible-believing Christian, has been denied a permit to study and collect geological samples from the Grand Canyon, despite the fact that he has received such permission many times in the past. I was a part of a study trip through the Canyon a few years back with him. It was a stunning journey through the handiwork of God. So much for the spirit of free inquiry.

Evangelical Textual Criticism

May 4, 2017

For those interested in higher biblical criticism, check out this blog.

 

In a sense this question is no different from what philosophers have been discussing since the days of Plato. Intuitively, or naively, most people who think for a moment about the text and the various forms in which it appears, solve the question the same way as Plato did. Different manuscripts with their slightly different wording, and even different translations of the text in a wild variety of languages, all constitute different instances of the same text, a perfect idea reflected in the wordings of the various manuscripts.
