I’ve written a new Helium article about making a framework for what laws apply to Christians today. Extract:
“Cafeteria religion” has become the term used to describe the picking and choosing of various religious ideas and doctrines to follow. However, is it anything new?
I was struck while reading The Year of Living Biblically of AJ Jacobs’ observation that you cannot take everything literally. Much of the language is metaphorical and even sometimes poetic. Certainly, Jesus’ parables were stories that had meanings beyond the literal words.
On top of that, what about laws that are not followed by either Jews or Christians today? What are we to make of that?
