prov·o·ca·tion - something that provokes, arouses, or stimulates. pant - to long eagerly; yearn. a collection of thoughts intended to provoke and inspire. these posts are hoping to encourage people to think, especially Christians, and pant even harder for the waterbrooks of the Lord. If you are not a believer in Christ Jesus, I welcome your perspective and encourage your investigation on these matters.

A Timely Word for the Timeless Word

I recently check out to see what John Piper has been reading and writing, and he has written a timely word that I believe we all need to read. It is called A Compelling Reason for Rigorous Training of the Mind. In a day where sermons are dumbed down and Christians are convincing themselves that anti-intellectualism is real spirituality (ignorance is godly?) and where television and entertainment dictate our learning, a call for rigorous thinking and reading is clarion and critical. It is a sad day, when, as believers we have more movie buffs specializing in novelty than discerning minds who can appraise biblical truth. I hope that this call resonates in the mind of Christians and fires our hearts to pursue Jesus - the Word made flesh.
