Ok, I used to be a teacher so you’ll have to excuse me with the title. I want to know which emergent leader said this quote. If you get it right, well you’ll have the profound privilege of being right. Is he or she espousing a social gospel?

…share your food with the hungry, and…provide the poor wanderer with shelter–when you see the naked,…clothe them…then your will light will be as bright as the dawn and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will before you and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. If you spend yourself on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like midday. The LORD will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun scorched land and will strengthen your frame.

Ingrid complains that Steve Camp’s comment was removed by Tim Challies:

Now if only we could get Tim to treat Steve Camp’s biblical challenges with the same even-handedness he uses with foul-mouthed Mark Driscoll! Here is Sexpert Driscoll on YouTube. **Warning** See also Driscoll’s sex conference video here. He’s decided to travel the country on a Song of Solomon tour where he can talk about all things sexual and justify it because, after all, it’s in the Bible. If you haven’t already, see my post on the Moses Code below. While the Christian pastors in the land fixate on sex, the enemy is oh, so busy.

As if the irony of Ingrid complaining about removed comments wasn’t enough, she calls Camp’s comment a “Biblical challenge” then mocks Driscoll’s claim that he talks about sex because its in the Bible.

We’ve seen this before, and we’ll see it again, the ODMs don’t care what’s actually in the Bible, what they care about is who’s on their team. Which is why Camp’s claims, which are specific to Driscoll and cultural are called “Biblical” while Driscoll’s obvious assertion that sex is taught about in the Bible, so Christians should be proclaiming those truths are characterized as acts of the enemy.

Sheesh.
