the new testament. get over it.

I'm a regular reader of Real Live Preacher. He's a part time Baptist minister in San Antonio, Texas. I gel with him and what he has to say. I really like his most recent post on the New Testament. It's definitely worth a read. Check it out here.

I also enjoyed what he had to say. It reminds me of a motto of Alexander Campbell's that he borrowed from John Hus, a Czech protestant priest whom predated Martin Luther (burned at the stake for believing the people should be able to read the Bible in their own language). In Essentials, Unity. In Non-Essentials, liberty. And in all things, Love. It just gives me the perspective of picking the right battles, especially when it comes to the New Testament.

I'm surprised more people didn't have as much to say about such a thoughtful entry by Mr. Atkinson. Thank you for sharing it.

This was well worth reading (as RLP usually is) but as a (pseudo-systematic) theologian I would also add that the flip side of the impossibility of definitive systematizing is the impossibility of not attempting it. At its most basic it is simply an expression of the human need for coherence.
