Answering Progressive Deconstructionists

Answering Progressive Deconstructionists

I understand the progressive’s therapeutic need for challenging popular evangelical beliefs with complaints that reject damaging beliefs. It should be remembered that evangelical belief does not constitute the majority of historic belief received and practiced by Christians throughout history. This alone suggests critiques of evangelicalism's claims should be presented. However, theology does not exclude the real possibility of new readings of scripture as we draw closer to the way of Jesus and the knowledge of Christ. It is imperative that we teach people to think critically with faith and produce constructive theology that flows through scripture with a harmonic continuity of interpretation and revelation.
