SILENCE IN THE SCRIPTURES...Few things separate religious folks more than their attitude toward silence in the Scriptures--is it restrictive or permissive? A friend (thanks Bill!) recommended this editorial by Stafford North to me. Considering the source--a publication for members of 'institutional' churches of Christ--his conclusion is surprising. But older folks in such churches are starting to realize that they've sown the wind and are now reaping the whirlwind with their permissive attitude toward God's word.

While you're over there, take a look at their conversation with Ferrell Jenkins.
