On Controversy and a Little Math

A good word over at Ligonier from John Newton about engaging in controversy. If you are sixty years old or older, read it twice a year, or roughly every six months. Multiply this recommendation of twice a year by two for every ten years that you fall short of sixty. If you are over eighty, you don't need to read it anymore.

I can hear the sophomoric nineteen-year-old's voice crying out vehemently in objection and gathering up a steam of polemic against legalism: "But where does the Bible require that!? And, in any case, if I did that, do you know how little time I'd have for fighting the enemy who is threatening to overthrow Christendom if I don't act now." Exactly.
