Most folks know what being a Christian is… but what is a Progressive Christian? I was recently asked that by someone on the The Ministry of Progressive Christianity‘s Facebook Page where I “minister” as an admin. Actually, it didn’t take me but a moment to answer and this is what I believe being a Progressive means:
Progressive Christians don’t take the Bible literally but read it in the context of the culture and time it was written. We understand that some things may and often are mistranslated due to language limitations.
When in doubt Progressives choose love over judgement, peace over war, and social justice over power. We do not believe being gay is a sin, we fight for those who are oppressed, and we reach out with compassion and resources to those who have the least.
Progressive Christians do not try to define God or limit God, but to learn about Him with an open heart and mind. Jesus is who we follow not just by his words or how he lived, but how he loved. We believe that God is Love and Love is all that really matters.
