I want to start this post by confessing something: there are sections of Scripture that would be much easier to simply erase. If God would give me a “delete” button to use on the Bible, I would be tempted to eliminate the portions that give me the most grief. Before I go any further, let me make a few things clear. (1) I believe that the WHOLE Bible is “God breathed” and our infallible source of truth in all matters of faith and life. (2) Even though there is a part of me that would like to “delete” certain verses, I am grateful to God for these passages because they stretch us to live in tension… which leads me to embracing grace and mystery in deeper ways.
If you could press "delete" on a Bible passage, which one would you erase?
