  1. Nice. I think, another way of putting it that gets to some of the critique of the day is don’t define what God’s character is by looking at the people who claim his name. Look at those people as broken Eikons (to borrow from Scott McKnight) of who God is.

    And… to push the envelope a LITTLE for some of the more literalist folks… this might also apply, in part, to some of what we read in the OT… remember, it was humans inspired by God, trying to make sense of that inspiration, writing down what they understood… There’s a LOT of good in the OT to express the story of God… but I wonder how much humanity snuck in as well…
