My article “Beware the Pattern!” appeared at New Wineskins earlier today.
I just wanted to make sure everyone knew I’d actually read Behold the Pattern! — several times, in fact.
For those not familiar with the background, some years ago, Goebel Music wrote that very long, very caustic book condemning the “liberals” in the Churches of Christ. Someone paid to have a copy sent free to every known “change agent” in the Churches. A got my copy from a friend.
You see, at this time, I hadn’t fully made up my mind on a bunch of things. So I read it. And then my mind was made up. There was no doubt at all which point of view most nearly reflected the heart of Jesus.
And I’ve been expecting my copy to come in the mail ever since.
By this way, the article is all about Hebrews 8 – 10, which condemns seeking salvation by duplicating a pattern.
