Listen to Paul Edwards interview Martin Bashir here. I highly recommend it! Bashir is the one who bashed a Bell recently. 🙂

Here are my thoughts. The quotes utilize the dynamic equivalence theory. 🙂

Bashir says the book is evasive, disingenuous, and historically inaccurate. Bell selectively quotes Luther and uses him out of context. He does that repeatedly with historical and biblical texts. Bashir slams Bell’s method.

“Bashir knows more about historic Christianity than Rob Bell,” Paul Edwards. I agree with Paul. 🙂

Bashir is really sharp. He was born into a Muslim family. He says that Christianity will offend any culture it goes to at some point.

The book is “…the psychological out-workings of a young man… and I am sympathetic with that.” “He is a victim of his own experience, as we all are to a point.”

“Any theological position that can’t be questioned is not worth following.” This includes Islam.

He nails the emergent movement as a youth movement away from historic Christian theology and practice. “If the church has been so backwards and out of touch with culture, how has it survived?” Amen!

“If I start rapping and dressing and talking like a 15 year-old as a parent, it won’t work.” Amen!

Bashir says he does attend Keller’s church, married to a Christian woman, and is a committed Christian. Amen!

“My personal faith was entirely irrelevant in that interview.” Well, I’m not so sure of that.

He is very sharp and easy to listen to.

Why is Theonomy Unbiblical?

Why is Theonomy Unbiblical?

Before critiquing theonomy, we need a good definition. Some people today who use the word “theonomy” don’t mean anything more than “God’s law” because the etimology of the word theonomy is “theos” which means God, and “nomos” which means law. They only want to affirm that God’s law is supreme over man’s law. And they’re right about that. God’s transcendent moral law is the norm that norms all norms. Governmental laws should always be consistent with God’s law and human law must never violate God’s law.

But in this post, I’ll be using the word “theonomy” in a more technical sense, which is rooted in the historic usage of the term.

A Post-Logue to #DatPostmil? Blog Posts

It is always a humbling and learning experience to read the responses to a blog series on a controversial subject. Iron does sharpen iron, as the Bible says, and I learn much from those responses. Some postmils have taken a little umbrage at my description of Postmillennialism as a millennium involving a distinct, golden age following the one in which we live.
