When you come across a tough passage of scripture, what do you do? Do you…
- Decide to reject the Bible in general and that passage in particular?
- Just skim over it and let it go past?
- Accept that “God said it, I believe it, and that settles it?” or
- Wrestle with it until you find where God might be speaking to us in it?
In this sermon, Rev. David Schell discusses how to wrestle faithfully with a passage in which Jesus assumes his hearers are slaveholders and does not condemn the practice.
