¿No es esta porción de la Escritura el quid real de nuestro camino espiritual como familia de la iglesia?  Hemos visto, en Gálatas 5:16-25, una lista que contiene los "actos de una naturaleza pecaminosa", y ciertamente hay algunos problemas de las Grandes Ligas contemplados en ella.  Me siento bastante bien cuando empiezo a leer la lista.  Pero luego llegamos a los "pecados" que afectan a nuestras relaciones.  Parece que Pablo me dijera que "el fracaso

Isn’t this portion of Scripture the true crux of our spiritual journey as a church family? We have seen, in Galatians 5:16-25, a list of the “acts of a sinful nature,” and there are certainly some major league issues listed there. I am feeling pretty good as we get started into the list. But then we get to “sins” that impact our relationships. Paul seems to be saying to me that “moral failure” is more than adultery or acts of public depravity. He gives even more space to acts and attitudes that make me stop and take inventory.

When I was very small, two or three years old perhaps, my mother would put me in a play pen on the back lawn, under a tree, and give me sweet slices of fresh peach. As I grew up, she always tried to have a ripe white peach from the garden for me on my birthday in early May in southern California. Peaches are still my favorite fruit. And my earliest memory is of sun through leaves, of that sweet moment of anticipation.

Would you become an Adventist today if you weren’t already one? Donna Carlson made a presentation to the Roy Branson Legacy Sabbath School (RBLSS) on August 19 about Chapter 9 in Where Are We Headed? Adventism After San Antonio by William G. Johnsson which must have caused this question to pop into the minds of quite a few who listened to her.

Many of us read the Bible in linear fashion in which every narrative, piece of poetry, legal text, and other forms of prose merit equal weight to every other, with every text representing God’s ideal will equally. As a result, we have no defining way to resolve texts that conflict with one another. Consequently, we often take sides supporting one set of “key texts” over against another set.

“When should we use the Bible? It was written in a different culture. It is prescientific. It does not deal with many of our issues. We sometimes use it when we should not. How should we decide? These are complex questions and the answers are not straightforward. We are going to have to take a look at them someday.”

In the first two thirds of the Letter to the Galatians, Paul is engaged in a frank and sometimes angry, rhetorical defense of his apostolic authority and the gospel that he had been proclaiming among the Gentiles. In these sections, Paul argues that he is as much an apostle as Peter and his colleagues in Jerusalem and that his teaching—that Gentiles could become Christians and live accordingly outside the context of the Jewish law—is true and biblically valid.

“What is a ‘hermeneutical community’?”

“Who constitutes the ‘Invisible Remnant’?”

Those who were at the Roy Branson Legacy Sabbath School (RBLSS) on August 5 were so intrigued by Jerald Whitehouse’s presentation of these ideas that they rescheduled him to return on September 16.

Ben Clausen frequently referred to the idea of “paradox” in his July 29 response to Chapter 6 in Where Are We Headed?
