The greatest preacher America has ever seen


One of the good things about a blog is that mistakes can easily be corrected. Say something out of turn or make a factual error and it's straightforward to put right. I was catching up on the blogs through Google Reader and read this from Mark Driscoll on George Whitefield;
"George Whitefield (1714–1770) began preaching at the age of twenty-four and is the greatest preacher America has ever produced."
I was just about to fire off a blog blast pointing out Whitefield's Britishness (like it matters in the Kingdom of God) when I read this on the actual Resurgence post;
"George Whitefield (1714–1770) began preaching at the age of twenty-four and is the greatest preacher America has ever seen."
A significant change that saved Driscoll from factual errors and saved me from demonstrating undignified nationalism and general ranting. Note to self: Take time to think before you blog.
