Had a long chat with a pastor recently. He seems to want to debate with me and is a pastor with a dozen books, perhaps even more than me. He is using this book to aide his exegesis and view on both homosexuality and the role of women in the ministry. Slaves, Women & Homosexuals: Exploring the Hermeneutics of Cultural Analysis This book has been endorsed by Bible Scholar Darrell L. Bock and certainly his words on exegesis will exceed a book by a pastor author, or a theologian author and these kinds of books dominate my library. This pastor I spoke with just can't seem to read the Bible literally and interpret literally as I do, expect in passages where the meaning is explained as figurative, or common sense dictates a figurative meaning. So how should I respond to him? I am preparing a letter and will strive to address his many points and lengthly email to me based on what I do know. I am no NT Scholar nor have much training in the original languages, but I do have the Holy Spirit and have training in apologetics and evangelism. All I can do is witness and let God grant repentance and faith. But it would be nice to address his arguments.
