…I find some solid and good arguments from the emergent/emerging conversation, particularly with regards to evangelicals tending to lean too much to propositional truths, doctrine and salvation and forget the fact of reading the bible as story and living out the faith rather than just arguing about labels?
…I find the New Perspective on Paul an eye opener particularly when thinking that Paul was only concentrating the bulk of his argument on law in the lines of ‘working out salvation’ only perspective? I have gained a richer perspective in viewing Paul after reading NPP’s views.
…when I find Open Theism raising some needed views opposed to the only or ‘over sovereigness’ of God that some Classical Theist might argue? I find open theism raising their views with regards to the over imposing views that say God authors everyones life in detail which I will disagree with.
…when I find arguments about inerrancy and the bible (Genesis in particular) an open topic reading Peter Enns, Bruce Waltkey and others who give different opinions on the issue? Reading them has not made me junk the bible as the Word of God but rather made me convinced of it being The Word of God.
With that I think I’m not Evangelical if I cannot conform to the necessary labels for ascribing to Evangelical. So with that is there another term to label those who are open but yet in nature Evangelical?
