One of the founding fathers of America, Thomas Jefferson, is infamous for taking a pair of scissors and cutting out certain Bible passages. He did so especially with the miracles of Jesus since they went against Jefferson’s enlightenment worldview. While I don’t think Christians would dare bring a scissor to what we regard as God’s word, the question is, do we skip around certain passages and verses when they don’t fit our agenda? Do we in our mind cut out texts that go against the grain of our worldview and/or ideology?
I enjoy writing music, recording, drumming, and reading up about the Bible and discipleship. I'm married to the absolute love of my life and am a father of two. I have a MDiv from Portland Seminary of George Fox with an emphasis in Biblical studies.
