December Update
Notes

Dear Friends,

In addition to the main article in the November-December newsletter, “Where Is the Outrage?” there are two articles by other writers. The first article on “Love Sins” is by Bruce Davidson, whose articles we have used before. Davidson, who is a professor at a university in Japan, has been a long-time subscriber to our newsletter and we appreciate his insights into some of the topics about which we have written.

One of the topics covered by Davidson is “unconditional love.” He says, “While ‘unconditional love’ sounds a lot like grace, it is really entitlement. It obliges people to accept others no matter what they do. Those who fail to do so can be accused of neglect or abuse.” Unconditional love is a subject we have addressed over the years and we appreciate Davidson’s insights into how easily there can be misunderstanding about its meaning and application. For example, he says:

Since many in contemporary church bodies have exchanged their historic belief in a holy God who actually punishes sins for one of unconditional love and acceptance, it is not surprising that many in those churches are now also coming to embrace the fashionable morality of the day in regard to sexuality.

The other article, “DIRT COUNSELING,” by Dwight Oswald is a blog that he sent us. We were much impressed with what he said and how compatible it is with our own writings. Oswald is a long-time subscriber to our newsletter. Oswald rightly equates “Dirt Counseling” with our expression “problem-centered counseling” and dramatizes the DIRT interchanges between a husband and wife that often occurs in counseling and labels the interchange a “Blame Game.” As Oswald says, “Dirt is no respecter of persons.” His emphasis on “Biblical Sanctification” in contrast to “Dirt Counseling” is the needed remedy for godly change rather than their fleshly accommodation.

We greatly appreciate you supporting these efforts to inform and warn believers and we hope these added insights on these subjects are of great benefit to many.
