“Please remember that while the experience of God may be a universal experience, the explanation of the God experience is always a human creation shaped by the perceptions of people living in history. Every God explanation, every sacred text and every creedal formula is always time bound and time warped. That is why literalizing religious formulas is so destructive. It is literalized formulas that cause us to believe our limited view of God is the same as God.” – John Shelby Spong | CoffeeAndConv.org #progressivechristian #progressivetheology #JohnsCreek #Alpharetta #MiltonGA #RoswellGA #DuluthGA #SuwaneeGA #sugarhill #peachtreecorners #norcrossga #CummingGA
