“I’m just saying what the Bible says.” “I just believe the Bible.” “That’s what the verse says.” Have you ever heard people say these things while contending for a theological position that sounds off to you? This practice has a name. It’s called biblicism. As Christians, we all want to be people of the Word. The question is whether we are handling the Word correctly. Many people through history have drawn false conclusions by “just reading the Bible” divorced from orthodox theological frameworks. Jon and Justin have a conversation about all of this in today’s episode.
Semper Reformanda: Jon and Justin talk more about the inherent inconsistency of biblicism, as well as the significance of theological debate through the history of the church.
