Description: A man is saying, "The Bible clearly says...". But the hand of God comes down with a red marker and edits his proclamation to say, "My interpretation of the Bible to me clearly says what I want it to say!"
CLEARLY THE BIBLE SAYS
Whenever anyone says that my brain shuts down and my participation in the conversation is over.
Because clearly they don't know what they're talking about when they say that.
Clearly the Bible is not clear on many things.
Including the LGBTQIA+ reality.
But they would only respond, "But they're interpreting it wrong and only for their own ends!"
Don't they realize everybody else says the same thing about them?
There isn't just one interpretation of the Bible.
There are as many interpretations of the Bible as there are those interpreting it.
This is clear.
We all come to all texts with our own lens.
It's absolutely crucial to know this.
