One Response to “Dr. Dan Video – Christlike Spirituality”

Dear Dr. Lockwood,
Thank you for the honors you bestowed on the 1961 Grad Class recently. I have always been very grateful to God for that single year of my life — perhaps the most important. For it was then that I was privileged to have Dr. Mitchell teach me most of the doctrinal portions of the New Testament, crucial to Christ being formed in me.
One of the things we were taught is that “right doctrine brings right practice.” Technically, that is not always true in that we must be doers of the Word and not hearers only. On the other hand, wrong doctrine almost in every case brings wrong practice and, especially, a misunderstanding of who God is and how He works– both essential to a more complete spiritual formation.
In our brief discussion at the luncheon you mentioned that Multnomah had never taken a stand on a literal six day creation and that Dr. Congdon took issue with yom =24 hrs. I believe this is a serious error and greatly undermines who God is and how He works as well as the accuracy of the Bible. Regardless of the past, this is a serious issue today. I would welcome any opportunity to share my views on this subject and how it has helped me love and know God more clearly. Also to hear why you may believe this should not be an issue at MU.
For Jesus, Creator, Savior and Lord, Doris Theis Anderson.
