Sadly I think his parable all-too-well illustrates what has happened in our current theological debates: no real debate or conversation. I hope we can move beyond this impasse. I hope we can move to the table together as brothers and sisters who, though we disagree, all recognize each others’ desires and drives to be faithful to Christ, following him wherever he may lead us.
I hope we can cease viewing other brothers and sisters in Christ who differ from us as basically non-Christian in their approach to the Bible, or essentially trying to sneak heterodoxy in the back door, or just rank traditionalists, or at base operating out of a “low view” of Scripture, etc. I hope we can all have the sympathy and charity for which Art pleads on his post and charitably and humbly interact with each other as Christians.
