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.”
About the author
I’m a husband, father, and one of those friends who has a terrible habit of not returning phone calls. I’m really just trying to figure out what it means to follow Jesus, and I enjoy meeting great people along the way and maybe having a chance to spend time talking about things deep and trivial.
