Dr. York on the Heartbreak of Sin

"You can debate theology all you want, but you better remember that you are preaching to idiots like me and you need to say it so we can understand it."
-a Baptist layman speaking to Southern Seminary students.

Dr. York doesn't have time to blog a lot (for the reason why click here!) But when he does, it's usually worth your time to read it. Dr. York has certainly made headlines among SBTS students in the last year, as he was one of the first to publically defend the IMB baptism policy. Despite what anyone's opinion may be on that matter, Dr. York is certainly a man of God who deserves the respect commanded in 1 Thessalonians 5:12 as he labors over both his church and seminary students. He has posted a very convicting post on the heartbreaking effects of sin. His final two paragraphs really cut to the heart of the Christian ministry. Check it out, it's worth a read:
