One of the Things I Love About The Bible

Most often there is no one “biblical position” on a topic, especially modern ones. Discerning the scripture isn’t that easy or simple. Instead, the Bible prompts us to choose a position, to take responsibility for how we apply the scripture to our lives. It doesn’t let us off the hook. It is rarely that “The Bible says this and only this” on a topic. More often, when the whole of scripture is taken into account, it works in this manner: “The Bible says a lot of things related to this topic, and I/we choose this interpretation or perspective.”
