Within a certain context, I have been officially forbidden from teaching a doctrine which I believe and which those overseeing me do not. This was done arbitrarily, without a hearing, and over a year after my views became known, during which I was officially endorsed as a teacher by these same people. Having now moved from inclination to certainty, I believe that I need to demand a hearing of my views by those officials. If they can convince me that I am mistaken, I'd gladly recant. However, if not, then I will need to remove myself as teacher within that organization, as it is essential that I be allowed to teach those things I believe and not be silenced. In the past, when I taught my views on this doctrine, I always included a disclaimer along the lines of "however, believing Christians do disagree on this issue." However, discussion is forbidden, and that's simply wrong.

Dean Esmay's infant son Drake is sick with pneumonia. Please pray for Drake and also for his parents, Dean and Rosemary.
...but I'll be done with things by about Tuesday. Besides, I'm approaching one thousand blog posts, and I think that calls for some sort of celebration. Err, online. During Lent. An online Lenten celebration. Yeah, it sounds lame to me, too. Nonetheless...
