What is a "red letter" Christian? Many here have attacked those who focus on the RED LETTERS of Christ. This is a place for those who misunderstand, to see that RED LETTER Christians don't ignore the rest of the Bible, the Word through the Holy Spirit (John 1:1) or even the old testement; but rather they try to take the bible in its context of time and specific intent, yes, as the inspired Word of God. The concept of a Living Bible comes from John 1:1 to suggest that the WORD pre-existed the written word, as did God himself. Can a Baptist focus on the Words of Christ while taking the rest in proper context? Absolutely. This is a safe thread for those who don't thump the Bible against the heads of the unsaved, but rather, share the Word, and leave the rest to the burdening of the Holy Spirit.
