Ugh. I’ve come to expect Roman Catholic FReepers to be arrogant, but your injecting your denominational arrogance into this discussion within just a few comments ... is just pathetic.
Why not promote Jesus as much as you promote your denomination, yeah? And try not to derail conversations like you are doing here.
That's not much of an argument.
I don't have a "denomination." The Church is the Body of Christ. You are making a false distinction.
And try not to derail conversations like you are doing here.
You're derailing the conversation.
The article clearly describes what Vines is arguing and what grounds he is using to make his argument.
It also outlines the response of the SBC to his argument.
My comments are precisely on topic and on point: Vines is using core Reformation principles to argue against traditional Christian morality.
The SBC response is to either sidestep like Walker or, like Mohler, fall back on 2,000 years of traditional Scriptural interpretation.
That's fascinating, wouldn't you say?
Exactly. It is like the Church is on the same level as Jesus. I will choose Him and His word over any church.
