Steve Maynard has written an excellent article, “Dividing point” (TNT, 2-26), on the interpretation of the Scriptures that has caused great anguish for pastors and parishioners, particularly among the mainline denominations regarding human sexuality.

I believe he has rightly clarified from his interviews the continuing debate on the question of the authority of the Scriptures as the infallible source in following Jesus Christ and his inspired word, and those who would follow a prevailing interpretation of the Scriptures that seems to me to be more culturally and “politically” correct.

I personally take a more traditional or orthodox stand on the authenticity of God’s word as revealed by the writers of the Bible and believe the laws of the Old Testament still prevail, and were fulfilled by the coming of Christ into our world.

Fortunately, without regard to our differences, shortcomings and failures we have a great God who loves all of us.
