Carl Trueman with a(n) Historical Perspective
Carl Truman has been warning us about some things. As an expert and teacher in Church History, the man probably has a few things to say. He spoke about the problem of celebrity before. Now, he brings it to bear in a post about The Elephant Room and the ever-popular “race card” that was played in defending a celebrity pastor.
Great quote here:
[T]he foundations for the creedal doctrine of the Trinity were laid by men who thought doctrine was something for which it was actually worth suffering and dying.
But hey, if a bunch of middle-aged American pastors in the Elephant Room tell you Nicea and its delegates — and all the Christians who have suffered and died to maintain its truth over the centuries — are irrelevant, who am I to question them? To do so would surely be the height of arrogance. Ahem.
