Quote: Scripture as Condiment

… we tend to use scripture like a condiment, something added to our intellectual and political positions after they have been cooking for a while.

One thought on “Quote: Scripture as Condiment

  1. I think that could be viewed positively or negatively. On the down side, it’s pretty dubious to go Scripture shopping for proofs that underpin our existing prejudices. On the up side, there’s a positive circular relationship between Scripture and experience. It’s surely just as possible to begin a journey around that circle from the experience end.
