Christian liberal

But here’s the thing: Liberal Christians love the Bible. No, seriously. We love the Bible. We just refuse to treat it as though it is a set of timeless golden tablets that says all that needs to be said once and for all about everything of importance.

I personally refuse to accept the label of Liberal or Conservative simply because I have views accepted and denounced by both sides, and I don’t think that makes me incoherent. Sometimes we try too hard to make everything fit in a nice systematic package.
