Although committed to the principle of sola Scriptura, Calvin recognized that the Bible would have been written in terms its original recipients would have understood.

But not just yet.

Saturday Sermon: Who is Jesus?
Although it is now clear that we, “the sons and daughters of Adam,” were created through an evolutionary process, we believe that all of humankind has a fallen nature in need of redemption.

Series: Scripture and the Authority of God
N.T. Wright explores the context and manner in which Scripture is authoritative. He does so by questioning the meaning of an authoritative book as well as the application of such authority. Wright encourages us to flee from the controlling “list” mentalities that belittle the richness of God’s Word, and rather to understand it as a narrative inspired by God and recorded by ancient persons. Ultimately, God “organizes” his people through his Son Jesus and by the Holy Spirit, and not through extracted rules from the Bible.
Series: A Quest for God
In this five part series, two young men, Josh and Aron, engage each other through e-mail letters.

Ideas such as prayer, judgment, and the concealed nature of God are among the many points in this truth-seeking exchange.

Science or sola Scriptura?
So, for Driscoll, the choice is a simple dichotomy: Scripture or science. Scripture is the highest court of authority in all matters, and the role of believing scientists is to affirm Scripture. To fail to do so is to “exchange the truths of Scripture for the truths of science”.
Life and Death

Art, Worship, Creation, and Imaginative Engagement
We should not be ashamed of the fact that our faith integrates spirit and body; our faith calls us to regard the stuff of creation in all of its materiality as good, and thus offers the best starting point for the practice and pleasure of art.
