Evangelicalism in Transition?

magazine-1.jpg

In a recent article by Time magazine, it would seem that many “clear teachings” within conservative evangelicalism are still being debated.  What i found interesting was how the writer explored whether or not the “new” interpretations of contested passages (like Jesus’ teaching on divorce) signaled a shift within conservative evangelicalism.  My two cents on this matter is that evangelicals will always struggle with these issues as long as such a literal interpretation is always required of the Bible, while discarding the gospel’s own “inner logic (to borrow from Torrance)” of grace, freedom, and redemption.
