While this isn’t all comprehensive, based upon my own experience, here’s my list:

10 reasons why I think reading your Bible more frequently will make you a more Progressive Christian:

1. The more I read my Bible, the more I realize that I don’t have it all together.

2. The more I read my Bible, the more I develop humility.

3. The more I read my Bible, the more I discover that justice for the poor and oppressed is at the heart of it.

4. The more I read my Bible, the more I realize “redistribution of wealth” wasn’t Obama’s idea– it was God’s.

5. The more I read my Bible, the more I realize that the early Christians actually practiced this re-distribution of wealth.

6. The more I read my Bible the more I realize Jesus taught we need to pay our taxes.

7. The more I read my Bible, the more I realize that God wants us to be people who are quick to show mercy.

8. The more I read my Bible, the more I realize that God cares how we treat immigrants.

9. The more I read my Bible, the more I realize that God will hold us accountable for how we care for the environment.

10. The more I read my Bible, the more I realize that God isn’t judging us by whether or not we get all of our doctrine right– he’s judging us by whether or not we get the “love one another” part right.
