Anne you repeat away! You always have great stuff to say!
(oops - just re-posted my original comment in the other discussion.... I do have a habit of repeating myself!)
Anne what a wonderful experience! You most certainly were privileged beyond words! What a blessing to see your children walk in the narrow way!
I think John Knox was made great because of his service to our GREAT God and Saviour! In and of himself, aside from his service~he knew he was just a weak man.
I am so thoroughly enjoying the John Knox book!
May we all practice being Bereans:)
It's interesting that Mr B said here that John Knox wanted a nation of Bereans... and that we must re-find this way of listening to sermons....
This was very much part of our Christian lives when we were first converted (around 25 years ago). It was normal for us to come out of church and say (often with a twinkle in our eye - this was *not* being critical of our minister), "Did you agree with what he said today about ........ ?". Often, our minister would then join our wee group in the car park and say, "Right.... what are you tearing apart now?!". And so our discussions would go on for some time.
In fellowship after services, I was used to hearing men and women (who, btw, didn't have a degree between them. These were fishermen, crofters, weavers....) discussing doctrines and teachings of Scripture - Calvin's view, John Owen's thoughts, Matthew Henry's quote ... They discussed in depths unlike anything I've ever heard since - even from professors.
I was privileged beyond words.
I am also thankful that we are now seeing our children and a number of Christian friends who come together - in our home, or in the homes of others - sitting for hours discussing what they heard preached or what they've just read. It is such an encouragement to us when we sit back and hear these young folks talking of the things of the Lord as naturally as others may talk of the weather.
May it always be so.
Great hearing DB talking about this great(?) man here. Was John Knox great? Or was it just that he served a great Saviour?
