This Message is from the Conference The Christian Mind: 2012 National Conference.
About the Conference, The Christian Mind: 2012 National Conference
One of the things most alarming about today’s culture is the way in which evangelicals are responding to attacks. Gone are the days, it seems at times, when believers devoted themselves to thinking deeply about the world in order to respond humbly to the church’s enemies without ceding any intellectual ground. Many evangelicals have bought into the idea that having one’s heart in the right place is all that matters - that a passion for Jesus and the life of the mind are mutually exclusive. What this view misses is that burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads. We must develop our minds if we are to sustain our passion for the Savior and deal with the bias against us.
At the Ligonier Ministries 2012 National Conference R.C. Sproul, Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Michael Horton, Steven J. Lawson, Albert Mohler, Steven Meyer, R.C. Sproul Jr. and Del Tackett considered the importance of building a Christian worldview, the role of education in the Christian life, science, and God’s natural revelation, defending the faith, and many other topics.
