Crazy Vacuous

Another timeless classic, sure to be cherished by many future generations of Christians… Or maybe just another tome punched out to keep up the revenue flow and his name in the limelight!

Seriously – is this the best the leading neo-reformed theologians can do? Vacuous.

O.K. I will grant you that this video is cute, but for some reason I have trouble imagining John Owen or J. Gresham Machen writing a book like this much less doing a spoof interview.  They were too “crazy busy” with serious matters.

“My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh.The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.”                    (Ecclesiastes 12:12-14, ESV)

Here is the mindset some Christians would do well to emulate:

“Years ago, the editor of a publishing company asked me to write a book on prayer. The theme is a vitally important one. The publishing house was well known. To be honest, I felt flattered. But in a moment of heaven-sent honesty, I told him that the author of such a book would need to be an older and more seasoned author (not to mention, alas, more prayerful) than I was. I mentioned one name and then another. My reaction seemed to encourage him to a moment of honesty, as well. He smiled. He had already asked the well-seasoned Christian leaders whose names I had just mentioned! They, too, had declined in similar terms. Wise men, I thought. Who can write or speak at any length easily on the mystery of prayer?”                                                                                                    -Sinclair B. Feguson, “In Christ Alone: Living The Gospel Centered Life.”

======================================

I guess Crazy Busy Kev won’t be getting any less Crazy Busy in the near future; as you can see from this giveaway by Crossway he will be releasing another new book in April.  I imagine Crazy Busy Kev will have another one 6 months after that, and then another, and another, and another……  Crazy!
