Adam Hamilton Sticks His Neck Right Out

Pastor Hamilton, having annoyed before the women can't teach in church crowd, now annoys the 6,000 year old/literal creation crowd when he took on Genesis 1-3 today. No doubt his email box will be filled with "loving" notes from Christians disagreeing with him.

I'm amazed he hasn't been run out on a rail; there must be enough people at that church who recognize that Methodist does not equal Fundamentalist (that's with a big F, people). If your hermeneutic leans towards the literal you are not going to be happy in a Wesleyan/Armenian church. You should go find a nice Fundamentalist church where the interpretation of the Bible is done in a way that you are more comfortable with--we'll see you in Heaven--we'll leave the light on for ya!

Whatever lens you use to interpret the Bible, remember our finite and sin tainted nature. Remember that we are to be imitators of Christ in our lives. Remember that love counts for more than skillful biblical interpretation. Remember that we were created in the image of God to love God, and be stewards of His creation. We were made to worship God.
