Living Spiritual Rhythms - June 29

When it comes to the creation and evolution debate, those who claim to be the most biblical among us are often more interested in dogmatically protecting their particular literal interpretations, than carefully studying, contemplating, and being open to a new dialogue between the theological and scientific informers. Whatever the text means to me is what it means has widespread influence today, and this lack of critical understanding can and does create serious problems for any viable questioning of one’s presuppositions. If there is no willingness to engage with and learn from the scientific informer and no interest in developing good biblical reading skills, then we’ve lost the path towards what’s true and real.
