Thanks for Saying That

I love it when other people say things so I don't have to. I love it when Christians themselves point out the foibles of the faith, calling us on being judgmental and labeling. I love it when someone else's soapbox is much taller than mine, and they have a good chance of being heard - but they're not shouting, they're beseeching. ("He who has ears to hear, let him hear . . . ")

Let's hear this message of wisdom: that we need to listen to each other, not make snap judgments. Jason Boyett makes the case for it, as follows. Thanks, Jason.Thoughts About Rob Bell, John Piper, and Justin Taylor
