First, I am so NOT an anti-Bether. Just to clear that up! But thank you all for your book suggestions and encouragement. I appreciate it greatly!
During Bible Study today, I got flummoxed when trying to explain myself. Something in the study rubbed me the wrong way, but I wasn't sure how to verbalize it and I think I just managed to say stupid things while trying. Oops. So be prepared to find a more nuanced description of where I am on the whole total depravity/sin/postmodern quandary/circular argument of the Bible's authority in a future post.
But as I'm researching, I find myself, again, firmly on the Orthodox side of the coin.
That WILL stir the pot...
