Wisdom from Thabiti Anyabwile

Thabiti Anyabwile may not be the name on everyone’s lips but if you haven’t come across him he’s well worth catching up with. His address at the Desiring God Conference for pastors 2007 on the glory of pervasive holiness in the life of a pastor is incredibly powerful. He also has a blog where you can catch him at http://purechurch.blogspot.com/

This short piece by him called ‘Virtue and its Imposters’ is pithy and searching

‘Three things confuse a Christian;

Yeah, four confound any man.

Unbelief masquerading as wisdom,
Enthusiasm presenting itself as faith,
Fear pretending to be patience,
and permissiveness claiming to be love.’
