Lew at “The Pursuit” has written a very important post called “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is“. Lew’s post is not about money, tithing, or stewardship. Instead, it is about Scripture and our “use” of Scripture. Lew speaks from experiences within Catholicism, the SBC, and the seminary at SEBTS. He says:
I see a trend in the SBC that is moving towards where Catholicism is. We may say, and we may think we believe that the Bible is important. But our actions are speaking louder than our words.
Knowing Lew, I know that he does not hold contempt for any of these organizations. Instead, he is calling brothers and sisters in Christ to live what they claim to believe. When you read this post, you may be tempted to respond in anger. I hope, instead, that you will prayerfully consider what he says. All of us, from time to time, have “used” the Bible to justify our own actions or beliefs instead of trying to determine what Scripture teaches and then change our lives accordingly.
