Lately it seems like I see more and more posts on Facebook complaining about the theology of other Christians. While a little healthy debate is normal, even encouraged, labeling someone a heretic or false prophet shouldn't be done lightly, especially on a public forum like Facebook.
I would love to meet two people who have read the Bible cover-to-cover and interpreted it exactly the same way. Methodist founder John Wesley knew that we wouldn't always agree when it came to theology. That's why Wesley taught that the tenets of our faith should be filtered through four different lenses: Experience, Tradition, Reason, and most importantly Scripture. Each person who reads the Bible does so with their own blend of life experiences, religious traditions, and unique way of thinking. Is it any surprise that we don't always end up with the exact same ideas about theology?
