Mercy Not Sacrifice: Three arguments for Biblical inerrancy that need to be retired

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/MZqhwRTAc_Y/


One of the most important books I read in seminary was evangelical Old Testament scholar Peter Enns’ Incarnation and Inspiration, which offers a way of understanding the Bible in which its authority can be respected even if some of the stories it tells are not historical events. Peter Enns just released another book called The Bible [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: Do you deserve to be crucified for your sin?

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/LKf4oFS5xfA/


This past weekend, Brian Zahnd and Michael Brown held a debate on the penal substitution atonement theory. While I tend to be on Brian’s side of the debate, I’m not willing to throw penal substitution completely out of the window. The concept of penal substitution has a whole lot of slippage within it. There’s a stark [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: Ben Corey’s Undiluted: An Accessible Escape-Hatch for Disaffected Fundamentalists

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/aC5ckm8FrEQ/


A book title about Jesus called Undiluted can make you roll your eyes at first if you come from the evangelical world. Because it trots out a long-standing trope that’s endemic to evangelical identity: “Those nominal mainline Christians have a ‘watered-down’ gospel, but we’ve got the undiluted, fully potent, Jesus plus nothing version that’s been stripped [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: Could ISIS become the Westboro Baptist of jihadism?

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/rIO6GcEt8IM/


Yes, I know, it’s a woefully contrived analogy. Hateful Christians with “God hates fags” signs are a completely different phenomenon than terrorists who massacre a whole countryside of people. But it’s a wishful thought that I want to have. Because I think Westboro Baptist has played an important role in turning the tide against the [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: Does Janay Rice’s voice matter?

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/KkG9gXEozJs/


In my first job out of college, I was the program coordinator of the Nicaragua Network, a solidarity organization founded in the 1980′s to support Nicaraguans when our country was trying to overthrow their government. I learned that being in solidarity with people means that they dictate the terms of your support for them. When [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: How Andrew W.K. messed with my prayer life

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/hzrzG6QvyLk/


The Village Voice in New York City has a weekly advice column by a guy named Andrew W.K. He gives unexpected answers to advice questions that typically come from a secular progressive angle. For example, he went off on the guy who said, “My dad’s a right-wing asshole” for the way that he was disrespecting [Read More...]
