Culture and the Word of God

Over at Wittenberg Gate, Dory has some trenchant thoughts on culture and the Word of God. An excerpt:

Revelation 19 gives us an image of a conquering Christ. The weapon He wields is a sword, but He does not carry that sword in His hand, He holds it in His mouth. It is the sword of His Word. The Great Commission (Matthew 28) gives the soldiers of the cross our marching orders. We are not told to wrestle power from the godless nations by physical strength, we are told to make disciples. In other words, we are told to teach. Says Paul, "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God..." (2 Corinthians 10: 4,5) We are not called upon to impose by force, we are called upon to convince.

Clear thinking, worth reading.

I found this link, by the way, through RazorsKiss, which, I'm happy to say, has included TF on its blogroll. Thanks, Joshua.

No prob. I bookmark whoever I find and like - and drop them on a "newly discovered" list - which periodically gets categorized.

So, you made it through a few "roadblocks" - which means I really do like you! :D

Reading through, I believe "razor" applies to the sharpness of Joshua's mind. I'm honored to make it through the process, RK.
