But this conversation IS about interpretation. It is about the agenda for interpretation, the two of which cannot be separated.
No matter how "objective" you want to pretend you are, there is no denying that agenda determines interpretation. I know that makes you all uncomfortable, because you want to believe that there is only ONE right answer. But we have seen that is not the case, not only with this video.
And so I ask again, what is YOUR agenda? What do you wish to prove, or need to preserve with YOUR personal interpretation?
Further, I want you to examine what the CONSEQUENCES f your interpretation are and if maybe...just maybe... we need to think about re-interpreting the bible in light of the destruction it has caused.
