One True God Blog has some interesting discussion going on in regards to Hugh Hewitt’s interview with Father Fassio back in early January. I had commented on this interview, and was intrigued by some of the comments regarding interpretation. Mark D. Roberts weighs in on this issue at One True God Blog. Here is an excerpt:
Evangelicals do recognize that we are all “traditioned” people, deeply embedded in our own communities of interpretation and our own historical context. Nevertheless, we do not agree with the Roman Catholic Church that an authoritative tradition is the means of interpreting the Bible. Pope Benedict XVI’s reported statement about the difference between Christian and Muslim methods of interpreting our the Bible and the Qur’an respectively must also be read in that light, and in light of the larger question of doctrinal change and authority. But then, that would be a different question for a different time.
