  1. Nate Pickowicz & Landon Chapman- Well, if I were paranoid, I’d be covering my windows with aluminum foil right about now. Who gave you two permission to go rooting around in my brain? Or is this ::gasp:: a case of plagiarism? :0)

    Yeah, I’ve had a LOT of coffee this morning.

    Thoughts:

    a) The BBB series- y’all are sweet, and if anything I did helped to promote the series, I’m glad. Honestly, I’m just always giddy as a schoolgirl (which spills over into my blog/social media) when I find a great resource I can put into my ladies’ hands to get them STUDYING the Bible with their brains instead of being emotionally manipulated by some divangelista.

    b) Nate, I started out in music, too. (Funny, I know a lot of people who are now in theology or the pastorate who started out in music.) Choirs, ensembles, solos, etc, from the time I was in 2nd grade, voice major my first year of college and married a minister of music. I was going to be the next Sandi Patti there for a while (http://www.satisfactionthroughchrist.com/2015/04/used-by-god.html) :0) If we ever meet up, we’ll have to do something musical together.

    c) It’s about time I FINALLY heard someone else say this: http://michellelesleybooks.com/2014/05/22/four-reasons-why-it-matters-who-we-share-pin-and-re-tweet/

    d) Memes, my boy! I demand more memes!

    e) God has been dealing with me for a couple of weeks about my tone and level of frustration with people who entertain false doctrine, and the main passage He has been using is 2 Tim. 2:22ff, like Landon mentioned.

    f) A question: I’ve also found that pastors are often ignorant of a) who the false teachers are and b) what they teach that’s false doctrine. Having worked with, known, and talked to a lot of pastors, I tend to chalk that up to the fact that they’re so busy as it is with sermon prep, hospital visits, meetings, etc., that they don’t have time to keep up with the basics of what’s going on in the arena of false doctrine/teachers. Do y’all think that (lack of time) is an accurate assessment?

    1. Wow! Michelle, thanks for your support! God has been so gracious to connect us with wonderful people through this ministry. He deserves all the praise for that.

      With regards to pastors not discerning false doctrine, I think it comes because, unless you’re Johnny-on-the-spot, it’s hard to keep up with them all!

      Further, there’s also the issue of sifting through if these men and women are: a) simply proponents of different doctrine, b) minor errors in doctrine, or c) damnable heresy. And different believers have differing levels of tolerance for these.

      For example, some rail against eschatological differences, while others embrace ecumenism without batting an eyelash. It’s really not as black and white as we think it might be.

      That’s why we must be discerning AND humble. A difficult task nonetheless. In his book “The Disappearance of God”, Albert Mohler has an introductory chapter that deals with he calls ‘theological triage’ that’s worth the price of the book!

      ~Nate

    2. Yeah, that’s kind of what I try to keep in mind. Every time you turn around, somebody who used to be orthodox is embracing something theologically whacko. It’s extremely hard to keep up. :0)
