    Makes Hamster look like the theological pygmy he is!

    This made me giggle. We can’t giggle, it’s church history, but – here I am giggling. Probably need to learn to laugh at this stuff a little more easily, lest I take it too seriously. Nice find.

    Interesting choice of cartoon, since you actually remind me of Luther in a couple of respects. First, he was absolutely immovable, though in his case he refused to budge unless his view could be shown to be false by Scripture, whereas in your case you insist that Scriptural teaching must be shaped by the current zeitgeist. Second, when Erasmus suggested that he be less confrontational, Luther not only didn’t comply, but he probably didn’t comprehend the admonition. He was a warrior at heart.

    • I’m happy to take that as a compliment – whether it was intended as one or not! 🙂 I certainly wouldn’t word things the way you did in articulating my own viewpoint. I don’t think that “Scriptural teaching must be shaped by the current zeitgeist.” I think that Scriptural teaching was shaped by the context in which it was written, and that we need to interact with, and both challenge and embrace, elements of our own era’s zeitgeist in the same way.
