But because I speak the truth, you do not believe me. (John 8:43-45)
...
For everyone who does evil hates the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. (John 3:19-20)
The world...hates Me, because I testify of it, that its deeds are evil. (John 7:7)
...
No one can come to Me, unless the Father who sent Me draws him...no one can come to Me, unless it has been granted him from the Father. (John 6:44, 65)
But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:26-27)
...
My colleague Jack Crabtree has proposed an analogy between God's sovereignty over creation and an author's sovereignty over a book; this analogy has been very helpful to me. Again, the logic of creation is at work; a creator is transcendent over his creation. When Iago cruelly tricks Othello into killing his beloved Desdemona, we don't think, How could Shakespeare be so cruel? In the world of Othello, Shakespeare didn't "do" anything; he created the world in which Iago and Othello acted. Whether Shakespeare is good or bad is not determined by what Iago did; it is determined by two criteria: (1) What were Shakespeare's purposes in creating? and (2) What actions in his creation represent what Shakespeare would do if he lived in that world?

I met Jack Crabtree in 1979 while traveling through Palo Alto and invited him to speak at a seminar for MSC. The relationship and friendship between Jack and me proved interesting and pivotal in the history of MSC. Jack, a graduate in philosophy from Stanford University, had been a pastor at Peninsula Bible Church in Palo Alto, California, for eight years. While there, Jack led a group of teachers in establishing "Scribe School," an institute for biblical languages, exegesis, and pastoral training.
...
Then in 1981, as God moves His children around occasionally, Jack Crabtree resigned his pastoring position at Peninsula Bible Church (PBC). PBC's loss was MSC's gain. Jack joined the MSC staff with a desire to establish a fresh version of Scribe School in Eugene. The new study program, called the MSC School of Biblical Exegesis, offered full-time students an in-depth course in biblical, theological, and church historical studies with an emphasis in hermeneutics, the study of interpretation as applied to the Bible. The new program required more staff with skills in teaching biblical languages and interpretation. To meet that need, David Smith, also a former PBC pastor, Ron Julian, and Dick Booster came from the Bay Area to work with Jack.

I finished my Ph.D. in educational policy; Jack entered and completed a Ph.D. in philosophy. During his tenure as a graduate student, Jack was given several opportunities to teach credited philosophy classes at the university.

On the other hand, we at MSC have witnessed religion's power to obscure essentials of the faith and provide "attractive alternatives" to facing into the actual truths of Scripture and the gospel itself. (Jack Crabtree has written two seminal essays on this subject, "Why Christianity is Religion-Free" and "The Means of Grace" that are available through the MSC office.)

Jack, a graduate in philosophy from Stanford University, had been a pastor at Peninsula Bible Church (PBC) in Palo Alto, California, for eight years. While there, Jack had helped establish Scribe School, an institute for biblical languages, exegesis, and pastoral training. Scribe School proved very effective, making a deeply felt theological and spiritual impact on the lives of a number of young men and women. The relationship and friendship between Jack and Wes proved pivotal in the history of MSC.
