Listening to the Bible

Our Reformed tradition places a good and positive emphasis on the Bible and yet we are always ready to see new light that God may shed on how we are and should be.

As Lawrence Moore puts it in his contribution to "Renewing Reformed Theology" - "
"The Bible was not dictated by God; it is the record of the faith of those who experienced God speaking.  That faith grows, develops and changes as God continues to speak.  The challenge of being God's people - the People of Yahweh and the Church - is continually to listen and to hear when God says something new (and possibly different) from the past."

Are we listening for what God is saying to us?
