Sloppy Theology

JP: An important comment from Charles Ryrie.

Charles Ryrie on Sloppy Theology

Ryrie used his Wednesday lecture to examine Gospel appeals that are made with imprecise language. He suggested that phrases such as “give your heart to Christ” were too confusing.

“Keep the direction clear,” Ryrie said. “But that’s not happening. There’s too much ‘I give’ instead of ‘I receive.’ I am on the receiving end, totally….The Gospel is about something God wants to do to me.”
