Challenge Your Traditions!

Hey, it's been a while! I've been too busy with other thing and have neglected this blog. I've just started reading "The Death of Death in the Death of Christ" by John Owen and had to share something that I saw in the introductory essay by J. I. Packer that I thought was pretty good. Here it is:

"There are signs today of a new upsurge of interest in the theology of the Bible: a new readiness to test traditions, to search the Scriptures and to think through the faith. It is to those who share this readiness that Owen's treatise is offered, in the belief that it will help us in one of the most urgent tasks facing Evangelical Christendom today-- the recovery of the gospel."

Great thought...are you ready to let the Scriptures challenge your assumptions and your coveted traditions. If you think you don't have one you're wrong. Jesus Christ sure challenged people's traditions...ought we not to do the same?

Chew on that...think about a tradition of your's that's been challenged. Have you really studied it out to make sure you're on solid ground?
