A Biblical View of Ferguson

Many individuals have written on the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. I want to call your attention to two of them. Both of these men are in a much better position to write on this subject than I am. One is a preacher, and the other is a professional football player. Regardless of their two very different professions, they both have nailed it down to the basic truth that we have a sin problem in this nation (and this world) and the answer to that problem is the Lord Jesus Christ.
Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of the African Christian University Seminary and the Pastor of Preaching at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas addressed the issue here.
Benjamin Watson, Tight End for the New Orleans Saints, comes at the situation from a slightly different angle but arrives at the same conclusion here.

These articles are worth taking the time to read.

A Little Leaven

“Error is like leaven, of which we read, ‘A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.’ Truth mixed with error is equivalent to all error, except that it is more innocent looking and, therefore, more dangerous. God hates such a mixture! Any error, or any truth-and-error mixture, calls for definite exposure and repudiation. To condone such is to be unfaithful to God and His Word and treacherous to imperiled souls for whom Christ died.”  (Exposing Error:  Is it Worthwhile? by Dr. Harry Ironside)
