In Danger of Friendly Fire

Kevin DeYoung:

Much neglected as fine expositions of classic Reformed theology, John Witherspoon’s treatises on Justification and Regeneration are worth reconsidering. In particular, Witherspoon’s discussion of how we defend justification too carelessly can speak to our day.

At the beginning of his treatise on Justification Witherspoon explains the one of the reasons for his work is to counter not only “the calumnies of enemies” but “the weakness or treachery of professed friends.” He notes two ways in which friends of justification injure the truth of justification.


Mindfulness

The gong sounds three times and people begin to focus their attention on a fixed point. A Buddhist temple scene?

This is the latest attempt to get people in touch with their “true” selves.
