I want to continue a thought that truth is subjective and that Followers of Jesus need to see Love as the foundation of their faith…not truth. I realize that this seems controversial, but hang with me and let’s see how this comes out the other side to start good conversation with each other.
I had an interesting, yet quick, conversation on Twitter the other day with a person named Dave Buerhing, who has a ministry called Lion Share. Someone had pointed out a tweet that this person had made. We were both confused at the statement that he made saying “this redefining love trend”. The comment was interesting for sure, which you can see on Twitter saying,
“In the midst of this redefining love trend, we must remember that love is rooted in God’s character – and is always married with His truth!”
When I asked him what he meant by “redefining love trend”, he ultimately landed on,
“As a follower of Jesus, the Scriptures are my reference point for truth. God loves people and died to free them from sin.”
This is my question. Is the “truth’ that he is talking about really just coming down to what he believes words in the bible say? In addition, is this “redefining love trend” addressed to all the people who do not agree with his interpretation of certain verses in the bible? If so, then this can create a huge problem.
