Interpretation

"But the Gospels do not kill people, interpreters do. Interpreters have used the Bible to aid and abet the enemies of life, just as others have used it to advocate justice and peace. Sacred scripture alone cannot protect the world from injustice and war. Those for whom the Bible is sacred text must exercise discernment and wisdom, accepting both power and responsibility. How believers imagine God’s power shapes how they conceive of and handle their own."    - Rita Nakashima Brock & Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parkera ; Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire, p. 49
