Doing Theology in Today’s World

February 8, 2011

Justin Taylor posts the following excerpt from J. I. Packer in the book Doing Theology in Today’s World: Essays in Honor of Kenneth S. Kantzer, edited by John D. Woodridge and Thomas Edward McComiskey:

Someone asked in the comments to the previous post what Sinclair Ferguson means by “the heresy of modernity.” I think he means the pervasive mindset so aptly described by J. I. Packer—namely, a belief that

the newer is the truer,
only what is recent is decent,
every shift of ground is a step forward,
and every latest word must be hailed as the last word on its subject.
