But Jesus answered them, “You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God...have you not read what was said to you by God?” — Matthew 22:29, 31 ESV
In our day, there is a rising interest in a faith centered on Jesus but not on the Bible. Some would say they are putting “Christ” back in Christian. Jesus was all about love, and while the Bible contains great wisdom in parts, it also contains lots of things that simply can’t be reconciled with the perspective of our modern day. Parts of the Old Testament and the writings of Paul are opposed to our culture’s definition of love.
