Saving Leonardo

I am really excited about Nancy Pearcey's new book  You can learn more about her at The Pearcey Report.  Tim Challies posted:

"In Saving Leonardo, best-selling award-winning author Nancy Pearcey (Total Truth, coauthor How Now Shall We Live?) makes a compelling case that secularism is destructive and dehumanizing."

Looks like a good resource.

Is she right?

"The column by Kathleen Parker is yet another signpost of the current age and the worldview of the secularized classes. In their view, what evangelicals believe about the Gospel of Jesus Christ is just out of bounds and embarrassing.

But, she tells her readers, don’t worry — younger evangelicals are going to put that belief far behind them.

Is she right?"

Dr. Mohler commenting on an article by Kathleen Parker entitled 'The quest to sort out competing and comparable religions.'

Is she right?

Who Needs Doctrine?

When you say, ‘I don’t care about doctrine, it’s how you live that matters,’ you are ironically promoting the doctrine of justification by works. You are proposing that what God really wants is a good life. The response can be similar when someone claims that it doesn’t matter which religion you belong to, because all religions are alike and no one should be held to a particular doctrine of God. Yet that assumes that God is not holy, and that He does not hold people responsible for how they live. In other words, to say, ‘no one should be held to a particular view of God’ is to assume and promote a particular view of God. To say, ‘doctrine about God doesn’t matter’ is itself a statement of doctrine about God – and therefore it does matter! So Martyn Lloyd-Jones concludes: “It is no use your saying, ‘We are not interested in doctrine; we are concerned about life’; if your doctrine is wrong, your life will be wrong.
