Or at least it is a documentary on his theory of linguistics…
That is hysterical and so true about Steve Camp
Yea verily and amen.
Prove to me that Steve Camp is like that, unless you can I think you owe him an apology.
SC hates on everyone who doesn’t do this.
I have been a fan of Steve Camp for a few years now. His high view of the Word of God is one that we should all emulate. I also believe that many people completely misunderstand him, when they say things like I have read in this blog.
Saying that, I believe Steve could learn a little tact, because obviously what he is trying to say is not being understood. Steve Camp is not a man who hates anybody, he is motivated by the truth and many of his opponents after corresponding with him have come to realize this. I have even read a few of his biggest fans say some nasty things about Steve’s correspondence with some of these people. One such person called for Steve to repent and stop compromising the truth.
Steve takes it on the chin on both sides of this issue, to some he is too compromising, to others he is not compromising enough.
I think the truth lies some where in the middle.
The Gospel should not ever be compromised and we should stand up for it.
This however doesn’t mean we don’t take a humble attitude when we enter into any discussion, or issue.
If anyone really knows Steve, they know he does try to be humble and loving. However like most of us, he is still growing in the Lord.
Steve has written some of the greatest Christian music ever. I love his music. However, when it comes to issues of style (not the Gospel..but style) Steve has made himself bigger than he should and consistently goes beyond the scripture… Worse than that he lets his opinions on how the Gospel should be communicated go beyond how the Bible itself communicates.
He has consistently attacked good men of God for not doing things the way Steve would. When confronted he repeats his charges but can not defend then exegetically.
“It pounds like thunder within my chest, all the anger of my humanness , though I call you Lord I must confess, I’m a stranger to your Holiness”
poopemerges- Can you give an example of who these “good men of God” are?
Are you talking people such as Brian McLaren and other Emergent people?
Are you talking about John Piper and his endorcement of Driscoll? If the later, do you also know that Steve is a big fan of Piper, but not neccesarily all things that Piper does.
I also believe that Piper was wrong to let Driscoll speak at his conferance because of the inapropriate language Driscoll often uses. However, I think Piper is right to stand with Driscoll, that is if what I read about Driscoll is true. Mainly that he is distancing himself more and more with the Emergent movement. It would seem that Piper sees something in Driscoll that is worth supporting and wants to help encourage him to keep reforming.
1. Steve is right to go after the emergents.
2. I have problems with what he says about Piper
3. I have issues with what he says about Driscoll.
4. We are very pro-Driscoll here. Mark is not and has never been emergent in the sense that McLaren and the like are. And has not associated with that group in years, since they started going crazy.
5. The Driscoll language thing is over blown. Read Philippians 3 in the original language and you will see that Steve would have a problem with the Apostle Paul too.
Sorry I don’t have access to the original language.
Will you quote it for me?
My problem with Steve going after Piper, is he didn’t first get clarification with Piper himself about what he meant.
That to me is wrong and Steve should apologize both to his readers and to John Piper himself. He should also get clarification from Piper himself as to why he ommited certain aspects.
Then even if Steve was correct about Piper’s meaning, he still needs to take ownership of his unloving and unbiblical (regardless of if it was intended or not) statements about Piper before he knew 100% what Piper’s actual meaning was.
I believe Steve Camp is a man who has a very high view of Scripture and a love of God. However, sometimes much like many of us in the interest of biblical integrity jumps to unneccesary conclusions.
