The Bible, Conflict, and Moving Forward
"...conflict about the meaning of the Bible- its origin, authority, and interpretation- is the single most divisive issue in American Christianity today." -Marcus Borg in Speaking Christian.
This reminds me of a conversation that I had in 2005 about the root of the ELCA's conflict over sexuality not being what people do in bed, but how we read and encounter scripture. So, how can we seriously move forward in relationship with others who view scripture radically differently?
