I was already loving Boyd after listening to him at https://www.dialoguejournal.com/2016/di ... -petersen/
But I have only read about 1/2 of this (it is long and I will need to wait for lunch to read and study it).
That sure rings true to me on how I see myself. I feel the only thing I can firmly stand on is that it is good for me to help others feel less pain in this life.What Runnells and others like him are experiencing is not crisis of information, it’s a crisis of confidence, a crisis of confidence in Church authority and institutions and a crisis of confidence in scripture and prophetic utterance.
He also mentions a friend saying
I know 1/2 my kids fit this description, and heck - I fit that description.“My kids aren’t asking how do I reconcile four versions of the First Vision. They are asking how can I trust that the church is getting anything right when the past seems so full of screw-ups, blunders, prejudice, ignorance, and evil?”
I can't wait until lunch when I have time to dig into this.
