Week 6 of 9 in Winslow: On Grieving the Spirit – Recommended Article

Reformation21, an online magazine published by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, has issued its third installment in a series titled, The Seven Deadly Sins in a Digital Age, by W. Bradford Littlejohn, who holds a Ph.D from the University of Edinburgh and is the Managing Editor of Political Theology Today, the General Editor of The Mercersburg Theology Study Series and can be found writing regularly at http://bradlittlejohn.com/.

The latest article is on the sin of gluttony, and you might not think gluttony has much to do with anything digital, but you’d be wrong. Littlejohn’s article shows how rampant gluttony is in our day, and you don’t have to be obese to be consumed by it (consumerism is a hint about the essence of the sin as he unpacks it). This article ties in nicely with Winslow’s handling of worldliness in chapter 6 of this week’s reading assignment. We’re far more worldly than we realize!
