As Braveheart said: “Just Be Yourselves.”

In this article, “An Unmessianic Sense of Non-Destiny”, Carl Trueman (Academic Dean, Vice President of Academic Affairs, and Professor of Historical Theology and Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.) gives needed encouragement tinged with a bit of admonition, as well. This resonates in my heart. It will resonate with many, I believe. (link to article here)

When The Study Of Theology Loses Sight Of Christ

Dr. Carl Trueman (Academic Dean, Vice President of Academic Affairs, and Professor of Historical Theology and Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.) writes a brilliant essay which, of particular benefit for academic theologians, benefits all who study Scripture in a serious, non-superficial way. Serious study of our Lord’s Word, though, is every Christians duty. This essay, written for Themelios: An International Journal for Pastors and Students of Theological and Religious Studies, titled “The Importance of Not Studying Theology” (link here) is a gem. Whatever issues one has had with some of Dr. Trueman’s past essays, and there have been several for me, I highly encourage reading this one. My respect for Dr. Trueman has risen…..incidentally he and I both enjoy Chess.
