This is the second installment of my seven-part series on my expression of Adventist Christianity: Progressive Orthodoxy. As explained in the first installment, this largely grew from a rejection of conservatism and liberalism. In this post, I will explain Thesis 1 of the 6 I proposed (see first post), and try to demonstrate how it helps us move past the battle between conservatism and liberalism.
