This isn't really a post about Mark Driscoll, who's at it again. Actually, I understand his theology. He didn't even have a tone in the first few moments I watched. I just don't agree with it.
Of course, if he's right, then God hates me and probably you (you wouldn't read this blog if you were predestined to be saved). It's nothing personal. It's just the way God's set it up. You know, he makes us all sin, then saves some of us to show how merciful he is, then blasts the rest of us to hell to show he's a man's Man.
Yeah, that makes sense. :-)
I just thought I'd pull you in for some Greek. blueletterbible.org is now in beta. Looks good. Has some increased functionality that I'll unfortunately learn from my students. I thought I'd do my interlinear shtick with Romans 3:25 since Driscoll wants us only to translate with "propitiation."
for a demonstration of the righteousness of him
because of the passing over of the having gone before but result remaining sins
"because he had passed over the sins that had taken place previously."
