So we arrived back home after our trip and have settled back into a reasonable routine. I expected the meetings I have this week and partially some of the other items that occurred but are not really worth mentioning. I knew I would be preparing for Christmas Music, two concerts on Saturday, Church on Sunday Morning, Labor Day Weekend, College Football (YES!!!!), sailing lessons for a friend and so forth. Then I received my standard, daily update from The Baptist Press that David Platt had been appointed to the International Mission Board as President. If you're not familiar with David, check out this link www.RadicaltheBook.com.
I watched some of the chatter online and the next day dug out my copy of his book which my wife and I purchased in 2011. I reviewed some of the things he wrote and then thought.....is Platt's ideology that "Radical" if we're true believers? The quick answer is "yes" if we're comparing his philosophy to the American Christianity Model but wasn't Christ a Jew? Hmmm.
Periodic updates from our family.
