After a long silence Dr. Hershael York is posting again at Confessions of a Pastor. This blogosphere comeback features his usual wit and wisdom. He lists three reasons for his slow posting. Like the many comebacks of Rocky Balboa, he lands a few punches on the young guys.
- “First, because I’m busy. Blogging is avocation only, and not necessary for my existence.“
- “The second reason I don’t write more is that I don’t want to make a fool of myself like so many bloggers seem to, confusing sharing my thoughts for having thoughts worth sharing.“
- “As a result of my notoriety for nothing I might be invited to the New Baptist Covenant Celebration in January and actually believe that my participation in a conference with people who deny the exclusivity of the gospel of Jesus Christ is worthwhile. I might forget that those people use our words but their own dictionary. I might fail to see the disingenuity in Carter’s previous statements about the SBC and his recent efforts to act the peacemaker. If frequent blogging were to do that, the risk would be far too great.“
What makes the article so interesting is Dr. York’s jab at Wade Burleson, Marty Duren and Ben Cole. By Dr. York’s logic the frequency of Albert Mohler’s Blogging might put him at the same risk. I love Dr. York and his blog, but he could have been more clear with his criticism. I appreciate his wisdom and wit. He clearly understands that the Gospel is at stake and these conversations with Carter hold little real promise. However, his pithy statements do not go far enough. Solid argumentation aside – it was a good punch worthy of Rocky himself.
