Yeah, not much

by Frank Turk

For the faithful few, blogging this week has been like a fourth or fifth-level priority between projects due at work and being actually sick. If you want to know what I'm thinking about, my Pastor has started a men's group on Wednesday mornings in which we will be reading J.I. Packer's edition of Luther's The Bondage of the Will, and I just received the newly-minted Believer's Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ edited by Schreiner and Wright.

And Dave Armstrong made an appearance in the meta at my blog to bemoan the fact that nobody takes him seriously anymore. So I clowned him.

Pretty slow week actually. How about you?

I guess you know its a slow week of blogging when you blog about it being a slow week of blogging!

I have been s-l-o-w-l-y reading Packer's translation of Bondage of the Will off and on for the past several months. Since much of it is Luther's rubuttal to Erasmus' Diatribe, I really think I need to read it first to see what is being refuted.

And I hate the new, improved Blogger. Typing this for the 2nd time...

Hm, I'm somewhat familiar with White, not so with Armstrong. But I do think blogdom, if the sniping can be contained, is a better forum for debate. Live debates are relics of the past (though fun). Printed debates (a la Erasmus v. Luther) are fine, but take too long. Now we can have more of the speed of print and more reflective responses than live debates sometimes allow for.

Maybe TeamPyro ought to referee this one, invite both to this neutral site. Perhaps that could be a new feature here, which would help lessen the burden of substantive blogging and prevent the dreaded "slow blogging" week.

Frank thats a really good book. I've been working on it for awhile too and, I've got to tell you, it looks like Erasmus was a Baptist.

It'd be hard not to, Frank.

Sharon said...

Slow week? With 3,000 pastors here to entertain at the Shepherds' Conference?? ;-)

Jonathan Moorhead said...

Ditto Sharon. The Shepherd's Conference is kickin'! Dr. MacArthur's message, "Why Every Self-Respecting Calvinist Is a Premillennialist," started a little bit of conversation.

I know what you mean, my latest efforts have been meandering halfhearted mishmashes; there's just too much going on right now...

"Dr. MacArthur's message, "Why Every Self-Respecting Calvinist Is a Premillennialist," started a little bit of conversation."

I guess Riddlebarger and Horton aren't presenting any seminars?

DJP said...

Why? Do you think they should be there to cast a little dark on the issue?

centuri0n said...

What was wrong with post-millenialism again?

Al said...

pre/post-mil? I thought this was verboten?

By the way Frank, I had to dig up something from four years ago to post on my blog. So I feel your pain.

Ah yes, the Shepherd's Conference. Had a great time there last year, couldn't make it this time. My son at TMC is enjoying it though - chapel with Mark Dever this morning, going to listen to Piper this evening. Do I sound envious?

I thought Piper wasn't there.
