    Can anyone from the land of Skip go a d drop by Legoland for me?

    ” Yet we often see the celebration of our union with Christ replaced by the age-old attractions of power and affluence, or by monastic retreats into ritual, liturgy, and sacrament.”

    (from the Gospel Coalition website — “About Us”)
    What a short-sighted statement. Equating liturgy with “retreat” and with power and affluence is downright dumb.

    I am reading the “Theological Vision for Ministry” from the Gospel Coalition website. Its interesting but I do have a question from what is written:?

    “We are neither overly optimistic nor pessimistic about our cultural influence, for we know that, as we walk in the steps of the One who laid down his life for his opponents, we will receive persecution even while having social impact”.

    Curious why do they use the term “One” and not the name of Jesus here? I have seen this before and can’t quite put my finger on it but something always seems strange when I see this. I can’t figure it out. It seems like there is a theological reason why they refer to Jesus as the “One” but to me if they said Jesus it would be less ambiguous. Jesus after all was 100% God and also 100% man but when they use the term “One”, I get the feeling that someone has a problem with the humanness of Jesus and this gives it a gnostic feel to it. I don’t know if my gut feelings have any merit but nevertheless it still kind of bothers me when I see this.

    Piper’s plenary session at the Conf would allay those fears. It was about Christ as fully man and fully God and why it had to be that way. And that these are truths we can KNOW.

    Andrew,

    I get what you’re saying. It bothers me too, a bit. My guess is that it’s just a cooler way of saying “Jesus.” Just don’t tell TD Jakes and the other modalists out there. 🙂

  7. Thank you Jeff and Michael.

  8. I got the privilege of preaching to the Heritage fols while Jeff was at the conference. They are as Travis said, a great group of people. Jeff is a good leader
