the word…alive!

As a personal faith matter for me the Lord is the living word. He cannot therefore be a text. His life and His example gives meaning to the text via interpretive analysis. He is the embodiment of the allegories and the metaphors and their object and referent. The one called Paul alludes to this when he says the text imprisons and the spirit liberates. For so many Eurocentric Christians, this lesson fell and continues to fall on deaf ears. They think that the literal text is the source of their salvation. A lot of people are going to walk with their bibles into destruction like those who attempted to use Christ to legitimate slavery, because they know not and do not seek higher understanding.
