Who Said That?

"It's been my observation that Reformed men who justify silence in the public square under the rubric of `two-kingdom theology' and `the spirituality of the church' are usually unconcerned about the sexual anarchy, oppression, and bloodshed of innocents that has long been the foundation of our civil compact here in these United States. In my experience they simply don't give a rip.

It's self-evident on any terms a civilized man accepts for the foundation of common law that sending wives, sisters, and mothers off to fight our enemies is evil, but see if spirituality-of-the-church men address the civil magistrate condemning this evil? It's self-evident on any terms a civilized man accepts for the foundation of common law that ripping unborn babies apart in their mothers' wombs is an evil as great as the world has ever known, but check out whether the two-kingdom men you know write about it on their blogs, speak against it in the public square, preach against it in their pulpits, or show up at the killing place to lift a finger to stop it."

My guess is James Dobson.

Yes, it was the Bayly brothers on their blog. A bit overblown in the rhetoric department, if you ask me.

Zrim, why do you call them Rabbis? Are they GRusalemites like Rabbi Vanderlaan, Kent Dobson and the other Grand Rapids "Rabbis".
September 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRana
Rana, how about the "Bishops of Bloomington" (Ohio)? But no, geographical location is less the reason than essentially saying "If you don't care like me then you don't care." That's usually one clue one is dealing with rabbis instead of pastors.

Zrim, I only asked if they were form GR because it seems like there are several guys out there who are co-opting the term Rabbi while making their case for the "historical" Jesus and church. when you used the term Rabbi it had me wondering ...

Goodness....I went to the Bayly's blog, not knowing who they were, and the guy on the left looks like me! So if you see me I'm not him!

(It's Tim and David Bayly. Joe Bayly is their dad.)
September 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterZrim
>>Joe Bayly is their dad.

And my son.

BTW, Reformed men having no saltiness and making a principle of that failure was a problem even when Dad was living and writing. It's nothing new. I'll post a reprint of one of his "Eternity" articles showing what he himself thought of this failure.
