The Quotable Steve Hays

I read this in a recent entry from Steve Hays. I liked it, not because it's Steve Hays, but because it's what I aspire to, despite my theological labels:

As I’ve said before, the first question a Christian must ask myself about what he believes is not: “Is this traditional?” but, “Is this Biblical”? The word of God, and not the word of man, must be our rule of faith.

When I’m on my deathbed, staring into eternity, it will be quite irrelevant to me and to my Maker whether I have my passport is stamped with all the right names of all the approved luminaries.

Thanks, Steve. A great reminder for all of us, regardless of theological persuasion.

I like that last paragraph a lot.

That sure boiled out the irrelevant. Yep, when it's all said and done, who cares what some antiquitous champion of doctinal decadence said in ages past. Only the changeless Word of God will stand forever. Amen!

Have you seen Daniel's list of compromised half baked untruths being spouted as scientific norms. Go ahead and make a healthy contribution.

Thanks Jim. I'm adding my two cents.
