  • according to Wiki "Progressive Christianity is the name given to a movement within contemporary Protestant Christianity characterized by willingness to question tradition, acceptance of human diversity with a strong emphasis for the poor and the oppressed and environmental stewardship of the Earth.

    and as far as Biblical goes "Many, if not most, Progressive Christians believe that the Bible is not the literal word of God." so i dont think it really matters to them if others think they are Biblical or not.

    but i think it sounds great. i dont agree w/ everything they believe but it sounds a lot more like Jesus' teachings than a lot of other Christian denoms ive looked into.

  • Honestly, anything progressive is not biblical. It's a dusty and obscure text no one even reads. Anyone who's ever had a hair cut or painted their nails is going to hell for not following exactly the word and law of God written to be upheld among us sorry humans. If it's a tolerant and caring version of the religion, then I think Jesus would be proud. The bible thumpers though? They tend to not even be able to spell the word progressive. And if they can, it gives them a headache.

  • IMHO, "progressive" (no headache here momto1plus2b) Christianity is trying to fit Christianity into your own little box, so that you feel safe and you're not taken out of your comfort zone to face the Truth... IMHO, you have 2 choices.. you either believe in Christ as your Savior and you follow His teachings or you don't... there's no in-between.
