Thanks for sending me a copy of the blog that you wrote, entitled “Don’t Get Into a Land War in Asia.” You expressed yourself well and said some very, very important things. I appreciated the fact that something I had written a long time ago in my book, A Reasonable Faith, has remained with you. Interestingly, that little quote has gotten me into a lot of trouble. That’s really strange because the people that wrote to me, condemning me for saying what I did, imply that they themselves have a complete understanding of Scripture, a thorough understanding of the nature of God, and that nothing that they say is anything but the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Such arrogance—but then, there are many who clothe arrogance with the cloak of orthodoxy. We should strive to be faithful to God’s Word, but we have to avoid any belief that we have the final word on truth. The Scripture says, “We look through a glass darkly.” Until we see Him face to face, we will not have the whole story.
Thanks for referring me to your blog. I hope that many see it and learn from it because you have much to teach us all.
