Peter Kirk responds to Anthony Bradley

First, the post here which is taking on the article by Anthony Bradley calling out Rachel Held Evans for her leadership in tackling Mark Driscoll‘s comments. Odd that Anthony had no issue in taking to the web to call out Evans, and raising the stakes just a little. He admits that he is wrong for calling Driscoll a bully, but is in general disagreement with Bradley on the other points. In a follow-up post, he takes the calling of Evans and thus those of us who followed her, slanderers. He’s correct, I believe.

I think that the idea of social media and Matthew 18, or Galatians 6, must be examined as it has given rise to the ability to speak and not be answered. It might be something for theo-bloggers/biblio-bloggers to examine in the coming weeks. The fact is, is that Driscoll removed himself from the normal Christian resource, I would counter. But, that discussion is for another day. Anyway, read Peter’s posts.

  1. Maybe I’m just tired at the end of a Saturday. Likely,it’s also that I’m a lightweight thinker compared to the rest…but sometimes I think FB & blogs and the rest allow us all to spend far too much time:
    1) correcting others,first individually & then once we’ve rallied the troops, en masse or 2) proving our own correctness in 3000 words or less but in the end 3) spending less time actually doing the kneeling & crying & confessing & forgiving & then lifting of our cross so that tomorrow we may look just a tiny little bit more like Jesus than we did today.
    Only Because of His Mercy,
