WHAT IS GOD'S TRUTH?

My old friend John Stringer has written in Kiwiblog here of the schism facing the Anglican Church in New Zealand.    It got me thinking ... 'what is God's truth'.

Always wondered about that having a father who was staunch Anglican (confirmed by the Archbishop of Canterbury no less) and a mother who was an equally staunch Baptist.    I was brought up theologically confused.

Over the years I have come to the conclusion that God's table is a smorgasbord of theological truths with some in conflict with others and some more important that others.    People are free to pick and choose from that smorgasbord and do so based on what is important to them.

We live in an ever changing world were nothing is immutable except birth, death and taxes. 

Atheists of course have it easy ... nothing to worry about ... except if they discover too late they were wrong.   For myself and I've always had a soft spot for the Salvation Army ... matching their mouths with muscle.

In one pithy sentence you have described what it is to be Presbyterian.

'People are free to pick and choose from that smorgasbord and do so based on what is important to them.'
