During a Nashville visit by Church of England…

During a Nashville visit by Church of England cleric James Richardson, he said that he was impressed with the religious enthusiasm of Americans. It was enough to make any British church jealous. However, he said he fondly hopes America keeps its TV evangelists to itself. Richardson said, “We don’t like what we are seeing. The TV evangelists offer emotional religion with little intellectual content. It’s unhealthy.” I totally agree with the English clergyman. Any profession that is all heart and no head, is only half of what it ought to be. The apostle Paul told Titus he should speak the things that become sound doctrine. Sound doctrine is healthy doctrine; sane, sensible, as well as saving. Be¬fore you say, “but there is some good in all of them” remember that Jesus expects us to separate the wheat from the chaff. Any religion that is 90% fluff and only 10% substance is 90% too fluffy. Christ¬ianity must never be heartless but neither should it be mindless. This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
