From Scot Miller’s post at Tony Jones’ blog:
Whether I happen to agree or disagree with someone’s conclusion is really irrelevant to the strength or weakness of the argument. . . .
I hope I am prejudiced to value human beings over moral or theological principles.
When Jesus was caught breaking the Law by gathering grain on the sabbath, Jesus said to his accusers, “The sabbath was made for humankind, not humankind for the sabbath” (Mark 2:27).
In a similar way, I suspect that the Bible and moral principles are made for human beings, and not the other way around.
