The Bible presents us with difficult statements about money andfinance, social justice, marriage and divorce, sex, religion andpolitics, and other areas of life. Many of us pick and chooseamong them, feeling free to treat some of the Bible's moralrulings as absolutes but ignoring those we find unacceptable.Are there areas where we can ignore what the Bible says? Is theBible simply wrong about some things? Are we free to argue thatwe understand things better than the biblical writers did and cantherefore disregard them? Or must we accept what the Bible tellsus, no matter how difficult it might be to put into practice?
