President Obama and the Need for Progressive Christianity


“My positions aren’t a rejection of the Bible, but an embrace of the gospel I find pervading the Bible. The danger of Fundamentalism is that it believes a simplistic, surface-level reading of Scripture is sufficient, unfortunately missing the fact that Fundamentalism’s ability to focus on the spirit of the gospel is almost always compromised by its supposition that the good news Jesus announces is mostly private, concerned primarily with making sure my bacon gets snatched from the fire.” http://ow.ly/eFojy http://ow.ly/i/12Y46
