A Sneak Preview of the New Issues, Etc. has provided a luscious tour of Host Todd Wilken and Producer Jeff Schwarz' new radio digs in Collinsville, IL, plus a glance at an article written by Pastor Wilken for their upcoming journal. I can taste it already!

Here is the concluding paragraph to Pastor Wilken's article, "Playing the Pharisee Card":

Those who play the Pharisee Card hope to dismiss Christians like you and me as ultra-conservative doctrinal purists with no love for the lost. But like a fifth Ace up the sleeve, the Pharisee Card is a cheat. Those who play it ignore the real errors of the real Pharisees. They wrongly apply the name to those who stand in the way of false teaching, compromising change and a watered-down gospel. In the end, The Pharisee Card amounts to nothing more than name-calling. And, like the Race or Gender Cards are in politics, in the Church, the Pharisee Card is always the sign of a losing hand.
