The Bible and Millennials

Greg Strand – October 24, 2014 2 Comments

Evangelicals affirm sola Scriptura and absoluta Scriptura, the Scriptures alone are the absolute authority, the norma normans, the norming norm, of everything we believe and profess/confess. We affirm this in our EFCA Statement of Faith, Article 2: “The Bible – We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.”

To continue reading this article, which focuses on two contemporary approaches to the Scriptures – the Bible basher and the progressive Evangelical millennial, see the post on the reachstudents’ blog.

Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
