May I speak frankly about the comments our posts generate? I try (sometimes successfully) not to dwell on the negative ones. One strategy might be to ignore them, but I can’t, since Steve Mathonnet-VanderWell and I are the people who approve them. We almost approve everything, unless it is vile or not connected to our content. Overall, I enjoy the comments, and find myself energized reading the positive ones. More than that, I appreciate it when a post generates a lot of interest. Two posts stuck out that way this week.
First was Tom Boogaart’s lead essay, “We Are Better Than This.” Tom patiently walked through a Reformed approach to biblical interpretation that many of you resonated deeply with. It’s an important article, and I hope you took a look at it.
