Mahaney on Dever on Spurgeon on Election

April 17, 2006

So what are the REAL conversations like between these friends?  Here’s some of the highly erudite conversation today!

Mark to CJ:  Wasn’t that a great Spurgeon quotation on election?! [referring to the quotation in the earlier blog entry entitled “A Becoming Weakness”]

CJ to Mark:  Yep, it’s a classic and affects folks every time I use it.

Note the careful use of the capital "S" and the subtle use of compound punctuation ("?!") and the great use of adjectives ("great").  And then in CJ’s response, note that he first identifies evidences of grace ("Yep") and then educates ("it’s a classic") and then illustrates ("and affects folks every time I use it").
