A THINKING FAITH

CHRISTIANITY IS DESIGNED by God to be a "thinking" faith. Os Guinness believes we are a generation that has "dumbed down" everything that is important to the level of bumper stickers and Hallmark cards, and we are suffering the consequences. One revealing bumper sticker of the type Guinness has in mind reads, "There is no right or wrong—only fun or boring." Yet God desires people to consider, reason, analyze, and study. He has given us His Word in propositional form, a Word that must be carefully dissected if it is to be understood. To allow ourselves to be pressed into the world's mold of entertainment without careful reflection based on Scripture is a terrible loss. —Gary E. Gilley, "Entertainment," This Little Church Went To Market

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" -2 Timothy 2:15
