You must be a thought-filled person. (Not thoughtful… thought-filled) For you to click on a blog with this title proves you are smarter than at least half the people you know, so congrats on that. I tend to put theologies in 3 categories – the “Rock-Solids”, the “Lean This Ways,” and the “No Ideas.” The … More Why the Impeccability of Christ Is Way More Important than You Think
Remember those SAT questions that ask, “Dog is to Puppy, as Cat is to ____________?” Well I have one for you. “Old Testament is to Circumcision, as New Testament is to ______________?” Know the answer?
