how to tell the biblical story in a way that makes a difference

A PS to my last comment…

Jaco, I am sure you are familiar with the quote, “In essentails unity, in non essentials liberty, in all things charity.” This quote is often used by evangelicals as a statement of their approach to theology and fellowship.

The thing is, belief in the deity of Christ is one of those things that I see listed over and over as one of those essentials–thus needing unityof belief in this area. That is why it seems so incongruous to me to claim to be an evangelical while refusing to affirm that belief. (Maybe somewhat akin to someone that would claim to be a Unitarian while refusing to state they believe that God is one and that means that Jesus was not God. And then showing from Scripture place after place where it teaches that Jesus is God!)
