At one point it was customary in English to capitalize the personal pronoun when referring to deity. You wrote “Him” instead of “him”. Yet, that has fallen out of fashion and so many modern translations follow the contemporary rules of grammar and don’t capitalize the personal pronoun. So is this just another one of those places where these modernized Bibles are bending to culture instead of standing on God’s unchangeable Word?
No. It’s actually not.
Trevin Wax and Randy Huff:
Many of the sharpest and most influential thinkers in England during the first years of the 20th century were outspoken in their skepticism toward the central claims of Christianity. Men such as Robert Blatchford (1851-1943) leveled a number of forceful arguments against Christian doctrine, relying on historical, scientific, and sociological research to bolster their perspectives.
Into this arena of prominent, published writers and thinkers marched 29-year-old G. K. Chesterton.
Ann Voskamp shares how they’re coping with some intense upheaval in their lives.
Even as I write that, though, I realize the vagueness of it. After all, what is authenticity? Is it being open, being honest, and being vulnerable? Yes. Is it leaving no thought unspoken, revealing too much too son, and dumping your crap on others? No.
The truest authenticity, the best authenticity is humble. Authenticity without humility is a lie.
I want to raise children who are generous and reflect God’s generosity with us. I’m certainly not advocating a morally empty, child-centric upbringing, motivated by a desire to keep my kids away from disappointment or conflict. Yet I have resisted admonishing my toddlers to share. Why? Because I believe that we might make more progress toward raising generous and selfless children if we thoughtfully consider the appropriate developmental stages for such lessons.
