"Therefore, I am not willing for the greatness of God and the supremacy of God and the centrality of God and "the preeminence of the glory of God" (which is the essence of the Reformed tradition) to be hijacked by a white, western, over-rationalized, cool tradition that alienates the Black experience which has drunk so deeply at the wells of suffering and scorn. These great realities are not meant to be like planks in a party platform, or like colors of competing teams, or like hostile signals between warring gangs. They are meant to be like the air we breathe and the earth we stand on and the galaxies we stare into."I like the strength of his language... "hijacked by a white, western, over-rationalized, cool tradition that alienates the Black experience"! That is great!
Carl Ellis has some great teaching about the "Gospel Gap" and the "Righteousness Window". I have an mp3 message that I downloaded a few years ago where he describes it. I have been trying to find the site to pass on to you but can't find it and I still don't know how to upload audio files from my computer.
There is another audio for download of a more recent message that he gave at John Piper's 2005 Desiring God Conference that is also very good. It seems he has had a strong impact on Piper. That is awesome!
