Where the Difference Really Lies

Ruth Gledhill, former religious affairs correspondent for The Times, was on Radio 4 yesterday morning, talking to Edward Stourton about the current conversations within Anglicanism on sexuality. She made a number of fascinating comments, but the one that struck me the most was this:

I think what we have here is not so much different views on what the Bible says, as different views on what authority the Bible has within the church. And that’s what’s at stake here—the authority of the Bible—and this is really where the disagreement is.

When a journalist as experienced as Ruth makes a comment like this, it’s worth thinking about.
