I've been a Christian since 1985, and a member of East Heights United Methodist Church in Wichita since 1994, though I no longer live in Wichita. My theology is Wesleyan/Arminian, but I don't think all Christians must share this view.

I believe that the Bible is inspired but not inerrant, that it was written to teach us about God and not the physical universe.

I believe faith is not an intellectual pursuit but a transformation of our entire being.

comment Did Abraham leave Haran before or after his father died?
I received two equally good answers, and I'm not sure which one to pick.

comment Should The Creation Story in Genesis Be Understood as Metaphorical?
What part are you asking whether it should be understood as metaphorical? The "six days"? Adam and Eve? For some peope, the answer might depend on which part you are focusing on.

comment Should The Creation Story in Genesis Be Understood as Metaphorical?
If you're really looking for arguments both for and against, you're probably better off splitting this into two questions.
