05/21/2008 - James White"A debate is a conflict which clarifies a position. A dialogue is a conversation which compromises a position."
John E. Ashbrook, The New Neutralism II
I don't have the book (yet), but given what yours truly does regularly (and by the way, we will have a major debate announcement upcoming soon!), this pithy statement caught my attention. So many I speak with fear the word "debate." Why? Because it assumes the very thing our culture denies exists: right and wrong, truth and error. We've become so concerned about the offense caused by someone who abuses the truth that we have abandoned those categories completely. The result is a neutered Christianity that has absolutely nothing to say to the world.
Pastor Chuck McIlhenny on ISI Today!
05/21/2008 - James WhiteThis is short notice, but you may wish to tune in Pastor Chuck McIlhenny on Iron Sharpens Iron today. McIlhenny's experience as pastor of the First Orthodox Presbyterian Church in San Francisco (which is right on the road I take to GGBTS each time I'm up there) was told in the book, When the Wicked Seize a City. My how true that title has proven to be! You can listen to the program on the web here at 3pm EDT.
