Young Men = Bambi on Ice

"The problem with vain disuptations and quasi-heresies and quarrels over words is that they are tempting bait for young men. Nobody loves arguing over open-hand theological issues like young men. There is something about the intellectual and emotional dawn of masculine maturation that instinctively draws young guys to stupid arguments. And many times the issues and topics are good things-things we should have opinions on or enjoy discussing. But young men are like Bambi on the frozen pond-all awkward limbs and little coordination." (Mark Driscoll in Entrusted with the Gospel, p. 79)

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
