Bible Living

A man lives an entire year according to biblical rules and regulations.

It never occurred to me that living according to the Bible would turn you into a hippy, or worse, a homeless looking guy. Is this how theonomists want us to all live?

It makes me even more grateful the Lord fulfilled all those laws. Praise the Lord for the age of Grace.

A few weeks ago I was in a church vestry in Suffolk practically lined with pictures of past ministers going back nearly two centuries. The early 19th century ministers were clean-shaven, the later 19th century pastors wore Spurgeonic beards. In the early 20th century they had moustaches, then they were clean shaven.
And then the 1970s pastor had a huge beard. Actually in the same period my dad looked a lot like Mr. Jacobs. Which is surely a comment on culture somehow.

Oh, in the 16th century one of the Puritans, lecturer at St. Andrew's, Norwich, had a five-foot beard. Mr. Jacobs has a long way to go before he reaches THAT length. The reason for the five-foot beard? To keep him grave and serious.
