Today's Mental Image:
We go to the Bible looking for information;
God goes to the Bible looking for conversation.
a quote from:
FURTHER THOUGHTS BY WAYNE ANSON
We have started, and I do not mean recently, to use the Bible as a commentary rather than
a source. Our Bible commentaries and theologies have become the lens
through which we read and study God and His word.
Despite our disclaimers that the Bible is the
source of our beliefs, in practice, we
approach the Bible only for
God wants to engage in a conversation
from which our beliefs grow.
