Two-fer Tuesday: 70/30 by Deacon Blue

Doing another “gimmick” again, similar to last week’s 50/50 posts by Deacon Blue and Miz Pink. This time, though, we each post exactly 70 words for our point, and the other has exactly 30 words to respond. But we can each pick whatever topic we want for our mini-posts today.

Getting Sloppy

It’s easy to become complacent. Mrs. Blue actually does much more Bible reading than I do overall, whereas I do more Bible “thinking” (which means most of my reading is part of research on a specific blog post or something). But know what? I’m not doing enough reading of God’s Word in general these days. Need to fix that.

After all, we are told to “study to show ourselves approved.”

Miz Pink’s Response

Really good advice I agree. But it’s about more than just reading the Bible. Bible-oriented educational books, radio shows, TV preachers all can add to studying to “show ourselves approved.”

    “all can add to studying to “show ourselves approved.”” (Mrs Blue)

    but we if we study to show ourselves ‘approved’ and we are not ‘approved’ by the more orthodox version of Christianity? Maybe we are not orthodox?

    I quoted it saying ‘Mrs Blue’ and that was a ‘Miz Pink’ quote – sorry about that.

    Yeah, Societyvs…uh, definitely don’t confuse us. Mrs. Blue already has Deke in the doghouse for admitting even a passing lusty attraction to Sarah Palin…I definitely don’t to be in her sites right now think maybe Deke and I have a thing…

    But gettin all serious and all, I don’t dig on terminology sometimes. For example, I consider myself fundamentalist even though I’m liberal as all hell…because I believe in the Bible itself fundamentally.

    But on the “approved” thang I just have to say I’m more concerned that God approves. That’s really the only individual I want to “show” that I’m doing my part to stay true to the Word. If anyone else notices and cares, cool…but it ain’t my goal.

Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
