The Roman Road From Insurrection – Russell Moore

Throughout all these years, I held out the possibility that maybe I am crazy, that I am completely unable to see what others were seeing.

I completely identify with that. I am completely unable to see through the eyes of other Christians who mix up politics and religion.

The Roman Road From Insurrection – Russell Moore

Also, I am sorry that I have failed to fully appreciate Russell Moore until recently. I’ll admit that I was biased by his being a Southern Baptist. In recognizing that bias, I realize that there are probably many more folks with something important to say, maybe even in my own movement, of which I have come to the point of despair. God help us.

Enraged by Ravi (Part 2): What if you were converted or discipled under a ministry like Ravi’s – Russell Moore

When someone you admire does something disgusting or evil, don’t admire what is disgusting or evil. At the same time, don’t let your rightful disgust turn you to despair. Many who come in Jesus’ name are frauds. Jesus is not.

Enraged by Ravi (Part 1): The wreckage of Ravi Zacharias – Russell Moore

The witness of the church is at stake. More importantly, the lives of those made in the image of God, those for whom Jesus died, are at stake. This awful report—coming on the heels of so many other situations detailed before—should rouse the conscience to ask not just how sadists can get into places of Christian leadership, but whether we have created a situation where the very presence of a conscience is an impediment to advancement in the Machiavellian and sometimes Caligula-like world of some sectors of American Christianity. 

Anger is not the ultimate answer. But it’s a start.

Losing Our Religion – Russell Moore

But nobody ever said, “Remember when I said ‘Gog and Magog’ of the Bible is the Soviet Union? I was wrong about that” or “Mikhail Gorbachev, I told you was probably the antichrist, but, my bad” or “Now that I also am using these supermarket scanners, maybe they’re not the Mark of the Beast after all.” These folks just moved on with the next confident assertions, as though the last never happened at all.
