Hitting Close to Home

Check out this exchange at Federal Schism.

As a new blogger I loved this list of “fundamentals” of serious blogging:

1. It doesn’t have a Latin Name. All important blogs have Latin names or are associated with Magazines with Latin Names. May I suggest something like “Add Marjerinium Morningum Gloriam.”
2. You don’t appear to have published any new books revising historic Christianity this month or even have his own church run printing press. All important blog authors do.
3. While occasionally sarcastic, your blog has a serious deficiency in snide and smug. The #2 and #3 qualities of all good blog posts.
4. I don’t understand the theology of your posts. None of them appear to be founded on paradox or mystery, the source of all good theology.
5. None of your posts appear to say A and Not A at the same time. How can I take you seriously when your positions are so easily nailed down? You also appear to believe that your opponents can understand what you are saying. A position we all know to be fatal to the blog conversation.
6. You appear to be against the Federal Vision. This is the surest sign that you are not right and don’t deserve to be read or listened to.

    I just discovered your blog a few days ago, along with the Trinity Review/John Robbins. You guys are a breath of fresh air. Thanks for taking the time to blog.

    Thanks Jim. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you. Trinity Foundation is the place to go for real meat. I’m very thankful to be associated with John even in a very small way. I can’t tell you how much I’ve benefited over the years because of his work. If you haven’t had the chance to listen to Dr. Robbins’ lectures on economics, do yourself a favor and download it at the site. I keep telling him he’s got to put the lectures into book form and God willing he will someday. It’s something that I think is badly needed and I can’t think of anyone else capable of writing it. His recent collection of essays, Freedom and Capitalism, is another breath of fresh air.

    Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to your comments in the future.
