Many are concerned about young people reading non-Anabaptist authors, afraid that they will lose their way. Others try to discredit non-Anabaptists on their interpretation of a scriptural passage on the basis of an unrelated belief or lack thereof.  How should we make our reading decisions, and how can we learn to appreciate the contributions of authors outside of our own communities?

1 thought on “Should We Listen to Non-Anabaptist Sources?”

  1. Thanks for your hard work in these podcasts, I enjoyed “Should we listen to non-Anabaptist sources” I recently read this quote and thought I would share it with you.
    “Therefore, in reading profane authors, the admirable light of truth displayed in them should remind us, that the human mind, however much fallen and perverted from it’s original integrity, is still adorned and invested with admirable gifts from it’s Creator. If we reflect that the the Spirit of God is the only fountain of truth, we will be careful, as we would avoid offering insult to him, not to reject or condemn the truth wherever it appears. In despising the gifts, we insult the Giver”
    -John Calvin
