If you are visiting this blog for the first time, or dont know me…this post may seem strange, or a bit weird…or you may think I am ‘one of those’…..but here goes.
Since when did the Bible stop being the foundation of our faith?
Since when did we start interpreting the bible as ‘just a bunch of stories’ with no practical instruction and even ‘shudder’ commands?
Since when did the Bible stop being a prescriptive document?
Is it because post modernism is pushing us too far the other way? Maybe, yet I have never resonated with modernism. Logical and rational arguments for proving God will only get us so far, we need faith. Someone wise mentioned to me the other day that we often interpret spiritual principles through a Greek mindset, to the detriment of the Hebrew one. I agree entirely with that.
Truth is that we need to understand that the Bible is true in all it affirms. And it affirms some very basic things about God, and His plan for our life.
If someone is not a Christian, thats one thing. But if someone says they are a Christian, and a church leader….then lets agree that the Bible is the place we turn to for truth, absolutes and what is sinful and against Gods nature. There is plenty of things I dont understand about God, His principles and why He operates the way He does. But I still surrender to what is clear from the scriptures, even if it sometimes grates against my culturally sensitive, post modernist mind.
