I’ve been paying for the hosting since this month 2012. Someone else has been paying for the domain. I’m months behind on my dissertation and have two classes in October that are overseas in addition to numerous other responsibilities. I’ll give the BHT some much needed love in about 10 months if I’m lucky. Blessed. […]

Hi. I still exist but I’m also months behind on my project thesis and thus barely a person. I have no hard data for what I’m about to say, but when has that ever stopped someone from blogging anything. The data on evangelicals and mainlines shouts one thing to me: many of the mainline losses […]

I have no bone to pick with any generation but I think the point of the tweet I shared was along the lines of “nothing has changed”. Same circus, different performers.

Time flies

Well, I’m dropping the ball over here. I probably won’t be able to match that initial burst back in October with my dissertation looming over my head and us looking for a new youth pastor. Hate to hear about Jolly Blogger. I hate cancer. 

Tom from Car Talk died today. I didn’t see my dad a whole lot growing up, but when I did you could almost bet there was a cassette Dad recorded from NPR of Car Talk playing in his Camaro. They were the very weird soundtrack of elation and sadness for me. As I said on […]

I really have no idea what post or tweet or whatever it was set this up, but this is the BHT so why should I let that stop me. Agree with Jared’s first point. Everything else has seemed a bit too cranky for my tastes, but the proof is in the pudding: you can bet […]

Looks like it made the server crash. I’m going to pray for him and his family instead of piling on.

To reference Bill’s question and answers from last week, let me admit that I’ve got influences and biases when it comes to this conversation. I will also say that I came to reject dispensationalism before I ever took a Bible or theology class in seminary because of what I felt was a disconnect between that […]

Well, we’ve figured out why I didn’t catch the harshness. I think dispensationalism is a completely ridiculous way to read and interpret Scripture. If I’m left behind, I’ll repent. Promise.

Which part was harsh? All I heard him say was that DTS was founded with a dispensational bent and that has continued to this day (true). DTS is a great school save for the dispensationalism which is one reason I never considered going there.
