Protestant evangelical Greg Stier writes in The Christian Post,

Is it me or is there a growing number of theologically conservative preachers, teachers and seminary students who just seem ticked off all of the time? They soak in all their “ologies” (Soteriology, Hamartiology, Christology, Pneumatology, etc.) and come out of their Bible bathtubs bubbling with bitterness, bile, and bite. Sadly, they are marked more by their pointed index fingers and furrowed brows than the joy of Christ.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for the “ologies” and am passionate about rightly dividing the Word of God. On a theological level I’m pretty stinkin’ conservative myself. But it seems to me that Biblical truth should not make us angry nerds who lash out at others who don’t line up with our point of view, especially on the issues that don’t matter as much.

Gosh, we don’t have anything like that in the Roman Catholic Church, do we? Or if we do, how should we respond to it??
