Open Mic: “The Bible teaches…?”
Billy Graham was famous for making his preaching points by introducing them with the phrase, “The Bible says…” Every week, pastors and preachers tell their listeners and congregations, “The Bible teaches…” What do they mean by saying that?
I invite you to an open forum discussion today on that question. What does someone mean when he or she says, “The Bible teaches…” and then makes some theological or moral assertion or argument? If you say that in conversations with others or when teaching or preaching, what do you mean?
In essence, we are asking how people think the Bible works.
