What is your reaction when you hear the phrase “The Bible says...”?
The Bible has been said to be both for and against slavery, women’s rights, capital punishment, abortion, and everything else. Some people say the Bible is the very words of God. Some say it is a nice piece of literature. Some people say that every decision in life should be made based on the Bible. Some say it should be thrown out.
How do we view the Bible? How does it function? What does the Bible say? Is it filled with contradictions? Can we trust or rely on the Bible? How do we read the Bible? Is there a right way to read the Bible? Does the Bible matter?
These and other questions will be explored as we attempt to examine what place the Bible does have and should have in our individual lives and in our community.
Hopefully, we can meet together and answer these questions from personal experience, from theology, and from non-Christian traditions.
Theology on Tap meets every Thursday from 5:30 to 7:00 at Henry’s Upstairs. Come late, leave early, talk a ton or be silent and stoic. No matter what we will have a good time.
