One of my favorite OT scholars, Chris Wright, had a timely and convicting word at last week’s Lausanne Congress. Pay attention to his warning against an idolatry of power and pride, greed, and wealth and success. This is a word to church leaders especially. I was particularly convicted by Wright’s warning against putting confidence in our own knowledge and appearance of knowledge.
“Before we go out to the world, we must come back to the Lord.” Oh, Lord, bring your church to repentance.
