Sean Faircloth’s Talk at the SSA
I just got off the phone with Sean Faircloth, and it prompted me to do something I had been meaning to do later in the week, but I need to do it now.
I posted this on my blog, “Shawn Faircloth of the SCA used a lot of emotionally charged logical fallcies and leaps in his talk.”
After our talk, I realized I had misheard him. I had thought that he was implying that all Christians take the book of James in the sense that some faith healer folks do. That is, have the elders pray for you and then don’t go to the doctor. Of course, James is advocating prayer, but never says “don’t see a doctor”. And, most Christians throughout its history have done just that. Pray and go see a doctor. I mean, for crying out loud, Luke was a physician!!!
Anyway, I misunderstood Sean to mean he thought all Christians were like that. I apologize to Sean and appreciated his phone call. I loved that he called and tried to make sure he was being clear. I actually loved one of his points about the church turning into an unregulated business. I’ll be talking more about that in the future.
I’m holding you to that promise to have a beer the next time you are in town, Sean.
