According to Denny Burk, there’s a new kerfuffle over theology:
Pete Enns critiques John Piper’s recent remarks about the Jewish conquest of Canaan in the Old Testament. Piper argues that God’s judgments are just and shouldn’t be questioned. Enns objects and argues that the biblical accounts are historically inaccurate and at odds with Jesus’ ethic in the New Testament.
OK, I’m sure that this is important for some reason.
Burk talks about Biblical inerrancy, historical inaccuracies, archeological data, God’ sovereignty, and authority of scriptures.
According to Burk:
If your view of scripture is deficient, then it’s no surprise that your view of God’s sovereignty might be deficient as well. Enns falls short on both counts.
The current score:
Piper 2, Enns 1.
But my guess is the ‘this is silly’ or ‘wow, you’re deep and way to serious’ crowd will come back for the win.
