“That’s not Christian! You’re using Jesus to promote your liberal agenda!”
I’m getting this a lot. I’ve spent a good deal of my life reading and studying the Bible (even going to graduate school for it). One of the things I do now is write this blog about what I’ve learned.
The interesting thing is, I very frequently get accused of promoting a progressive agenda. Frankly, I think that says more about the Bible than it does about me. It’s also been said that “the truth has a liberal bias.” So, there’s that too.
Well, if I’m going to be accused of having a progressive agenda, I might as well know what it is. So, I asked my friends on The God Article’s Facebook page what their “#1 priority as a progressive Christian”? Then, using their thoughts and mine, I put together this little “To Do” list. I wouldn’t exactly call it a complete list — but it’s a good start. I don’t get it right every day but I am trying.
In the future, when people accuse me of having a liberal or progressive agenda, I’m probably going to agree and share this with them.
