There’s a lot of wisdom in William F. Buckley Jr.‘s famous rule of thumb for voting: “the rightward-most viable candidate.”

Today Wayne Grudem published an article and participated in an interview in which he makes a strong case that conservative evangelicals should back Mitt Romney.
In light of my recent post on Mitt Romney, this news is especially interesting!
Matt Hoskinson‘s fourth article in his commendable series on youth discipleship is now available:

I was reminded of this tract today while re-reading George Mish Marsden‘s Fundamentalism and American Culture: The Shaping of Twentieth-Century Evangelicalism: 1870-1925 (2d ed.; New York: Oxford, 2006), p. 100. (It also occurs on p. 100 in the 1980 edition.) I spent a while searching for an image of it and finally found one on Timmy Brister’s blog.
Although no doubt well intentioned, this tract illustrates (1) evangelism that is both eisegetical and manipulative and (2) yet another reason that theology matters.
Below is a picture of the Eric True family. Eric is my brother-in-law, and his wife, Alicia, is my older sister. (I’m the second of seven children.) Their two boys are Brandon (age 4) and Jonathan (age 2).
God has burdened Eric to glorify Him by serving as a pastor in Southern California. Check out their . . .
I’ve known Eric well since about 2001, and I couldn’t dream of a better brother-in-law. He is above reproach. He’s perfect for my sister, and God has gifted him with outstanding pastoral gifts such as teaching, leadership, and overall people skills. Also, from my perspective, his theology is rock solid. And since Eric is a native of Southern California, it’s hard to think of a better fit for church planting. (Can you tell that I’m excited about this?!)
What can you do?
