BlogPointing

  • Justin has a great post about why it’s not legalism to abstain from alcohol. Read it.
  • Archer of the Forest has found a Mozart quiz. I got 6 of 10. Seems starting to listen to classical is beginning to pay off.
  • Tom Ascol has a great post about how pastors should respond to homosexual activism.
  • In one of the funniest posts I’ve ever read, Frank Turk over at Team Pyro talks about homeschooled kids (his) and video games. Check this one out if you don’t read any of the others, it’s hilarious!
  • One of our student colleagues (Kenan Plunk) points us to a great, great resource entitled How to Mark a Book. Read it as if your grades depended on it. Then go mark up your books.

Well, I think that’s enough for now. I’m gonna go start supper.

    Justin’s main thrust is actually that it is legalism for a Christian to practice moderate drinking. I will present another view based on Romans 14 on my blog.

    No, Reapolitiklr, the point that you are referring to is that this argument for drinking assumes legalism:

    -The Bible does not condemn drinking alcohol.
    -Whatever is not condemned in Scripture is okay to do.
    -Therefore, I can drink alcohol.

    The warrant for that second argument is based on a legalistic way of thinking about Scripture. There is more to the Christian life than a set of rules to follow. Namely, that ‘more’ is love. Specifically, love of God and love of neighbor. So Stephen is right; another point of my post is that abstaining from alcohol is not legalism.

    BTW, thanks for the link.
