In today’s video, Michael Ramsden of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics discusses the humility and openness we need to have before we approach Scripture. Ramsden encourages us to continually question to what extent our paradigms of Scripture can be open to change, lest we end up defending paradigms rather than what Scripture actually says.
The question, says Ramsden, is not if we should use our minds when reading Scripture, but how we can use them. Obviously there are things as Christians that we must hold to, but we must be clear as to what those things are. The fruit of the spirit, Ramsden reminds us, are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, and ever as “uncompromising” Christians, we must be sure that these virtues still shine through.
