Just thinking out loud...

I've been a believer for more than 25 years, and as I continue to see things (mostly fads) come and go within today's American evangelical church, I find myself wondering how many out there are thinking,

"Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt--which is now only useful as a rag to clean up nasty messes."

The problem is not necessarily that they're not thinking--they're not thinking with a renewed mind.

A mind renewed daily by God's word has a way of staying on track, but without the guidance of the Word, all sorts of things seem reasonable.

4:1 Hear, O sons, a father's instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight,
2 for I give you good precepts;
do not forsake my teaching.
3 When I was a son with my father,
tender, the only one in the sight of my mother,
4 he taught me and said to me,
“Let your heart hold fast my words;
keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom; get insight;
do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth.
6 Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
love her, and she will guard you.
7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom,
and whatever you get, get insight.
8 Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
she will honor you if you embrace her.
9 She will place on your head a graceful garland;
she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.”

Hi Connie, I agree with you :)

BTW, I changed my blog address but I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed meeting your daughter at the convention. I am loving my books I bought from Truth & Grace... (Dana)
