Googling Ourselves to Death

from Apr 21, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

I distinctly remember the period after I first began to embrace Reformed theology while a pastor with Calvary Chapel in Europe. The Bible had come alive to me as a result of having discovered that ‘the gospel’ was not just the ‘Roman Road’ down which we take unbelievers in order to get them to ‘pray the prayer’ and accept Jesus into their hearts, but it was so much more. The gospel as I came to realize, refers not just to our evangelistic tactics and formulae, but to all of the doctrines of grace that shape our lives as Christians: election, regeneration, saving faith, justification, sanctification, and glorification. In a word, I was overwhelmed with the new insights I was gaining. For this reason I would sit and study God’s Word for hours without interruption, often pursuing a biblical or doctrinal question as far as I possibly could, and exploring it as deeply as I possibly could, until I was satisfied that I understood the matter satisfactorily.”

But in his article for the April issue of Tabletalk, Jason Stellman realizes that things have changed. In fact, they have changed a lot.
