Excerpt From The Interview
The writer of Ecclesiastes was right. There’s nothing new under the sun. If you devolve all of these issues, the common thread that works its way through the mainline denominations, is the primacy of Scripture. I love this debate because this goes back hundreds and hundreds of years. The Bible is the word of God. As such, it applies to all people at all times and in all places. The core issue in every one of these is thus says the Lord. I’m not being rigid, I’m being obedient.
I didn’t write the book. God calls me to do what His word tells me. Whether it happens to do with the issue of how we define marriage or human sexuality or whether or not a woman should be a pastor, it all goes back to the center of the wheel. The other things are just spokes. The center of the wheel is the primacy of scripture and whether or not God said it, therefore, it is.
What I find so interesting is that Satan isn’t particularly clever. He’s just got a few tools in his bag, but keeps using them again and again because apparently they’re very effective. You wade up to your ankles in the scriptures and immediately you’ve got the enemy saying, did God really say that? And that question is what’s in front of us today.
