Agree or Disagree: The Bible is “clear”.


Agree or Disagree: The Bible is “clear”.

The above link is a thoughtful blog from Rachel Held Evans.

There is a historical tendency for people to justify some action because they have a clear biblical mandate to do what they feel necessary. You will be able to read some of the comments in the blog.

It has made me think a little bit about this.  I admittedly used the phrase “The Bible is clear.” I’ve seen other people use the phrase. I keep thinking it has a tone of finality to it.

However, is it that simple. Can people simply use the phrase the Bible is clear? Or, is it more complex than that?
