Via The Ministry of Progressive Christianity on Facebook. Can you think of examples of this being the case? To me, it immediately calls to mind two issues. One is the view that the text is inerrant, and so a reader with that presupposition may refuse to acknowledge when the text says something that is incorrect or immoral. Another is the view that the text provides supports for one’s worldview, and so evidence that a favorite prooftext means something other than what one assumed it meant may meet with resistance.
Given the photo, perhaps I should add that reading The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha: New Revised Standard Version itself suggests that one is less likely to have this particular issue? 🙂
