Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

The Bible should not unnecessarily be brought into conflict with the rest of our knowledge of the world. However, if it does come into conflict, we cannot simply prescribe that the Bible is correct. There may be situations in which it is more conscientious to admit that the Bible, taken at face value and without forced interpretation, is incorrect.

  1. The Bible has many radical things to say about the world as a political and moral system. In the moral sphere, when evaluating the rightness of actions and attitudes, the Bible has at least as much right to a hearing as any other authority. However, its statement must still be evaluated for reasonableness.
