Our ideology shapes our outlook, actions, and lifestyle. A core part of our ideology is our faith or beliefs. In other words, what we know to be true, and what we believe matters.
For example, in a bid to move the Church from inaction to social action, the writer of John’s Gospel emphasised that miracles were Signs, and the role of the Holy Spirit was to inspire the Church to continue the work of Creation.
By this, he shifted the thinking of the church from being solely dependent on ‘spiritual’ intervention, thereby moving them towards the use of their minds, skills, and talents collectively; in making real and lasting change in their communities.
This Sunday I will be building on the foundations I laid last week where we looked at Jesus’ life, teaching and ministry. In fact Paul described him as the, ‘Image of the invisible God’ – (Col 1:15). Therefore it is fitting that scriptures are interpreted through his framework.
This position however, puts to question the doctrine or notion of Biblical Inerrancy, as we see Jesus exposing gaps and correcting wrong ideas in Scriptures and traditions. Hence he is the last interpreter of the Scriptures.
Join us this Sunday for: I and the Father are One (John 10:30)
