It seems obvious that the Bible is receiving less attention and being given less respect. But is that true even amongst those who claim to follow the scriptures? In this talk Don Carson talks about Evangelicalism “drifting towards a softer view of scripture again”.
Don Carson speaks about the subtle ways that we can ignore scripture. Listen to the warning but also be re-inspired with the truth of the Bible.
N.B. Carson makes a comment about women in leadership. That is not a view with which most in AFFIRM would agree. There might be other issues with which you disagree. Please listen to the principles without being offended by the specific examples. Listen to what he says about the ways we can dismiss the Bible.
