In Defense of Book-Banning

Todd Pruitt:
Urging people away from certain books and insisting that ministry staff not recommend them is an important task of the pastor these days. This is particularly so in an age when theological nonsense is so widely distributed and easily attainable. It is the pastor's duty to protect the purity and unity of the flock he serves as shepherd. He does this in part by pointing those for whom he is responsible away from that which will lead them into error. To insist that he abandon this duty is to call him away from that for which he will give an answer.

I'm all for this sort of thing. In fact, I'd love to see some of the major Christian booksellers grow a backbone and start taking some responsibility for the books they sell. Yes, LifeWay, I'm looking at you. After all, what business does a ministry of the Southern Baptist Convention have selling trash by the likes of T. D. Jakes and Benny Hinn?
