This and That 10-13-12

The Life of a Critic – Let me get the caveats out first: there is nothing un-Christian about criticism. The Bible is full of criticism for false religion and false teachers. Jesus himself, right after instructing us not to judge (Matt. 7:1), insinuated some of his opponents were dogs and pigs (Matt. 7:6). Through the history of the church, criticism has helped to shape Christian doctrine and guard against heresies of every kind. We should not try to shut down criticism simply because it is criticism. Besides, if we fault the critics for being so critical aren’t we ourselves being critical? – Kevin DeYoung
