Respectable Sins

January 7, 2011

The hat trick today from Justin Taylor, pulling out an excellent quote from Jerry Bridge’s book, Respectable Sins: Confronting the Sins We Tolerate. The quote on judgmentalism is this:

The sin of judgmentalism is one of the most subtle of our “respectable” sins because it is often practiced under the guise of being zealous for what is right. It’s obvious that within our conservative evangelical circles there are myriads of opinions on everything from theology to conduct to lifestyle and politics. Not only are there multiple opinions but we usually assume our opinion is correct. That’s where our trouble with judgmentalism begins. We equate our opinions with truth. (p. 141)
