At the very least, I hope these columns challenge Christians to think. You can disagree with me and my opinions. You can disagree with my approach. I’m certainly fallible. But for your own sake think, study, seek understanding and pray for wisdom (Proverbs 3:13, James 1:5). After all, all truth is God’s truth.
Having said that, I think this column will be challenging.
In my last column, a general review/overview of Carl W. Wilson’s book Our Dance Has Turned to Death, I wrote: “[Be] forewarned—men, women, Christian, secularist, leftwing, and right wing—you will probably be offended in some way; no matter what group you identify with, Carl W. Wilson will confront and challenge your conventional wisdom.”
Of course, talking about the specific roles which God has ordained for men and women is offensive and controversial in this day and age, but Wilson’s book launches some even more controversial topics for conversation: Christianity and Capitalism, are they compatible? Is there anything wrong with putting children in Sunday School? Is abandonment of the death sentence for crimes, abandonment of Christianity? Have the feminists considered how their agenda has completely backfired on women? These are some of the topics that I touch on below. Topics to get your synapses firing, your blood boiling, and hopefully topics to get your fingers flipping through the pages of your Bible.
“But [as always] examine all things; hold fast to what is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
