When "narrative" becomes an excuse

Posted by

Would-be theologians who use appeals to "narrative" (and its function in the theology of the writers of Scripture) as a means of undermining the enduring normative authority of Scripture will find themselves under the searching judgment of the normative authority of that same word which they seek to marginalize. 2 Corinthians 4:2. What Scripture says, God says.

God's word is more than narrative. It is divine revelation. A lack of understanding and appreciation of the doctrine of revelation, and its ramifications for biblical authority, is characteristic of many who are seeking to "correct" the church's understanding of the Bible through appeals to "narrative" today.
