God’s Truth is very often “both/and” NOT “either/or”

dscn2273

The center of God’s will is often a place of holding 2 truths in tension.

Examples: God is sovereign AND we are accountable for our personal choices.  We are call to love with grace AND truth.

The Bible moves us to leading by managing a tension instead of solving a problem.

Examples: Technology is not the tool of the anti-Christ OR the solution to every problem.  It is possible to hold  a high view of marriage and yet offer a compassionate response to those who have seen marriage die and end in divorce.  There will always be cultural and generational differences on the best ways to worship, especially with music and the performing arts.
