“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)
The liberal rallying cry these days is that the bible is nothing more than “ancient texts” with little to meaning or relevance to our daily lives in our cutting edge, technology-laden, social society of 2015. These is heard not only in the New York Times piece we are discussing today, but also prevalent in the worship-du-jour Emergent Church as well.
