It’s very common in evangelicalism to either be a “thinking Christian” or a “doing Christian.” I think that these divisions are bunk. I think that thinking drives doing. Theology drives spirituality. I recently had the opportunity to say as much at Highland Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, a church featuring a thriving discipleship ministry led by my buddy (and fellow TEDS PhD grad) Doug Hankins. Here’s the link to the original talk. If you want to ponder this topic further, check out John Piper’s Think. There’s some discussion of this theme in the book I coedited from 2011 that Piper and D. A. Carson coauthored.
