What theology should be...
It is sometimes said that you can make the Bible teach
anything you like. I quite agree! You *can* make the
Bible teach anything you like - if you are unscrupulous
enough! But if we are scrupulous in using proper canons of
interpretation (for example, looking for the natural, the
original, and the general meaning), far from our being free
to manipulate Scripture, we find that Scripture controls
us. And theology becomes what it should always be, the
result of applying to the text of Scripture the ordinary
rules of grammar and logic.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
