The Regulative Principle: What the Bible Really Says

freedom_authority.jpgI’ve explained my views many times on this site. Let me just mention these few posts that explain what the Bible really says, rather than the Regulative Principle.

First, there’s this one old post dealing with the arguments made on Romans 14. Romans 14 is a central passage, explaining how grace really is supposed to work in a real church where real people struggle to agree on everything. It’s very practical and hence very important.

I’d add to it this post I call Romans taught backwards.

More complete discussions will be found in two on-line books and a lesson series designed for teaching in adult Bible classes:

HSRGThe Holy Spirit and Revolutionary Grace: God’s antidotes for division within the Churches of Christ

Do We Teach Another Gospel?

Amazing Grace

If you only have patience for only one (I wouldn’t blame you), I’d start with Do We Teach Another Gospel?

I’ve tried to be fairly comprehensive in this brief series on the Regulative Principle. To avoid boring you to tears, I’ve referred back to old posts to make my points whenever possible. But if I’ve missed a proof text or an argument, let me know. I’ll post a response.
