Who Said That?

Who said that they believed in the resurrection of Jesus, but would describe themself as less sure of the doctrine that being a Christian is the only way to salvation?

Or, “The whole Bible gives you a glimpse of God and God’s desire for a personal relationship, but we can’t possibly understand every way God is communicating with us… I’ve always felt that people who try to shoehorn in their cultural and social understandings of the time into the Bible might be actually missing the larger point.”

Or, “The whole idea of the new covenant was really a new relationship with God, a sense that we could be forgiven, that we could seek both personally and through our relationships with others that gift of forgiveness… It’s instrumental in life.”

You might be surprised, or maybe not. Find the answer here.

  1. Not making a political point, but definitely she’s encapsulates all that is post-modernity. I think she’ll get elected…however, my vote is not going her way. I might write “B. Ross Strader” in the blank!

    Strader in ’08!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How about this:
    “Darth Strader…Bringing balance to the White House”

  2. Clinton’s explanation (understanding?) of the covenant relationship between God and individual men is further evidence to me that she perceives salvation as self/man-centered, rather than God-centered. Her quote: “The whole idea of the new covenant was really a new relationship with God, a sense that we could be forgiven, that we could seek both personally and through our relationships with others that gift of forgiveness… It’s instrumental in life.” God’s forgiveness, evident in His relationship with man in the Old Covenant as well as the New Covenant, has always been prominently, graciously revealed thus: Sovereign God Saves/Redeems Created Sinful Man to and for His Glory Only. Her perception as forgiveness being specifically a New Covenant phenomenon, reveals her immature religious training: the idea that the “God in the Old Testament was a Judge; God in the New Testament is a God of Love.” This perspective is also evident in Clinton’s “social justice” political and cultural philosophy, which eagerly embraces tolerance (forgiveness) at the expense of righteousness, extolling His character of Forgiveness and denying that He is also a God of Justice.
    Referring merely to the political implications of this self-centered worldview, until she (and her colleagues) accept and worship God as Sovereign and Holy (as well as embodying Love and Charity), her/their political and cultural influences will be seriously flawed.
