Bishop John A. T. Robinson was famous for driving a wedge between the Bible, no longer identified with the word of God, and Christ. Below the jump, a characteristic quote. Progressive Christians today think of Robinson as a mentor. Fixed religious beliefs of any kind are considered to be a nuisance. The common denominator of progressive Christianity is not Christianity, except by accident. It is nothing more and nothing less than a version of political correctness. Two questions come to mind. (1) Does the progressive approach to the Bible attempt to read the biblical texts on their own terms? (2) Does “progressive Christianity” have a future? The answer is in the negative on both counts.
