Scripture. Holy Writ. The Bible. What do we do with it?
I am sure even asking the question, “What do we do with Scripture?” makes some people uncomfortable. The goal isn’t to make anyone feel uncomfortable but to ask the question and mean it! What do we do with Scripture? Do we take every word literally? Do we ignore it entirely? Do we try to live our life by it?
What I am trying to do with this week’s sermons is to help us remember that while all Scripture is Scripture . . . not every bit of Scripture is equal to every other bit. This sounds like heresy to some people but I am confident that if you listen to one or the other sermons you will, first of all, not think I’m a heretic; and, second of all, realize I’m probably articulating what you do already.
Reading and applying Scripture calls for discernment, wisdom, and humility. I hope you hear something to help you move a bit further in how you handle what you read.
