When our ideas about God differ

Gordon Atkinson, a Baptist pastor whose writings I greatly admire for their honesty and clarity, has posted an excellent article “Fighting Over the New Testament” on his blog, Real Live Preacher. He writes here in an easy-to-read way about the ways we humans tend to construct theology…sometimes quite dogmatically…and often miss the point.

Given how our theologies are formed, it’s a constant wonder to me that people are surprised and even angered when they meet someone whose ideas about God differ from their own.
