Proverbs 10:19 (ESV)
When words are many, transgression is not lacking,
but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.

Well a You Tube video by Jeff Bethke about how we should hate religion and love Jesus has gone viral and seems to be causing quite a stir.

One blogger made this in response.

Kevin DeYoung wrote  this about the video and its contents  and that led to this email exchange between him and Bethge.

Fascinating. The whole thing makes you want to pray that people would think more before they post stuff. It gives a little bit of hope in that a good conversation about differences took place. It makes me think about how difficult maintaining true unity can be. The importance of clear communication comes out big time as well as the importance of making sure we get our facts right before we talk although that has never really been a high priority for many of us. There is a flood of thoughts that come into play.  Within a week or two the whole thing will be gone and the blogosphere will be waxing eloquent on something else that will last a week.
