Below is a recently-published video which consists of different Christian leaders describing their journey into becoming affirming. A lot can be said about their words as well as the demeaning spirit that some of the leaders seemed to exhibit, but I’ll focus on a few lines.
“We have a long history of being wrong. At the heart of the Christian hermeneutic should be humility” says one pastor. Of course; any Christian leader worth his or her salt must employ such a hermeneutic. The question is, does this then translate into us allowing cultural expectations and our interpretation of Scripture to merge?
The video ends with the following line:
“If it’s going to be good news, it’s going to be good news for everyone.” This really doesn’t resonate with me; the gospel critiques all cultures, and American Progressive culture is not somehow exempt.
For those who have watched the video, thoughts?
