Moral Contradictions

Yet another great question...

To add to my collection of thought-provoking questions (which currently exists in singular form at present with: Who has the right to determine our theology?) comes a question from Jim Evans in a great article titled "Believing or Not Believing the Bible": (h/t to Dr. Mike Kear at The Emmaus Theory)

Does the Bible only have authority for us when it is saying what we want it to say?

The reality is that the so-called "struggles for the Bible" are actually struggles for intrepretation of the Bible - do we read it reverently and objectively and try to honestly live out what it says, or do we approach it with a cavalier attitude and cultural agenda and cherry-pick parts that we like?
