It is only at the cost of a considerable independent divergence from God's word that a theologian's achievement wins renown in the current setting. The person who takes every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5) and loyally subordinates his thinking to God's revelation constructs no such theology. That person also no longer faces pressure to make a name for himself. For him it is enough if the Lord says to him, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

That's a good word. The more famous the theologian, the more careful you ought to be. Heard their name? Then watch out! Not because fame is a bad thing in itself, but because in this area of study, and in the current climate, they most likely got famous by committing crimes against what God actually says. Strange days indeed.
