…it is not just scholars and ministers

1Peter 3:15 says,  “but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you;”

To that end, I’m reading Philosophical Foundations For A Christian Worldview. They make this observation about Christians:

…it is not just scholars and ministers who will benefit from training in philosophy, but also laypeople who need to be intellectually engaged if our culture is to be effectively reformed. Our churches are unfortunately overly-populated with people whose minds, as Christians, are going to waste. As Malik observed, they may be spiritually regenerate, but their minds have not been converted; they still think like nonbelievers. Despite their Christian commitment, they remain largely empty selves. What is an empty self? An empty self is a person who is passive, sensate, busy and hurried, incapable of developing and interior life. Such a person is inordinately individualistic, infantile and narcissistic. (p. 5)

So to do my part in opposing this unhappy phenomenon in the Christian church, I recommend this intellectually helpful article, If God Created The Universe, Then Who Created God?

Let me know what you think.
