There Is No Debate

In his book There Is No Next, Sam Smith contends that Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. For most of my life, this hasn’t even been a debate. It’s been understood. 

But the older I get, the more I encounter younger LeBron James fans who believe this is a real debate. For a few members of my church, it’s a debate. For my daughter, it’s a debate. For my college students, it’s a debate. 

Every week before the start of class, I debate with my students about who’s the greatest. 

Nevertheless, although the greatness of a basketball player is up for the debate, can I tell you what isn’t up for debate? 

There’s no debate over the awesomeness and greatness of God. There is no debate that God is great and greatly to be praised.
