No one can fault Jonathan Merritt for lack of audacity. In a recent article he dismisses the majority opinion of evangelical biblical scholarship in one sentence. Well, it is because he, Michael Eric Dyson professor of sociology at Georgetown University , and social scientists say so. Merritt seems to write with the assumption that the witnesses he has assembled should settle the matter for all of us. The short piece reads more like a tantrum than a thoughtful interaction with the issue.
Liberal Progressives envision a different kind of America from the way most Christians view it.

The verses in the New Testament do not conflict, or replace the Old Testament verses. We had much less problem with disrespect and contempt for authority when corporal punishment by parents was common.
