The Power of Progressive Lenses in Scripture Interpretation

At It Is Well Living Church, we believe in exploring the Bible with progressive lenses to gain a deep and nuanced understanding of scripture. Our commitment to critical analysis and comprehensive interpretation enables our community to engage with the Bible from a fresh perspective.

Unveiling the Complexities of Scripture

The Bible, as a sacred text, carries within it a wealth of wisdom, guidance, and narratives that have shaped countless lives throughout history. However, it is often perceived as a challenging and enigmatic collection of writings. At It Is Well Living Church, we seek to demystify the Bible, removing barriers that hinder a deep engagement with its teachings.

Approaching the Bible with Openness and Reflection

Our community understands that reading the Bible with progressive lenses requires openness and reflection. It encourages us to question traditional interpretations and explore alternative perspectives, without compromising the core values and principles of faith.

Integrating Historical Context and Cultural Relevance

When examining scripture, we firmly believe in integrating historical context and cultural relevance. By understanding the social, political, and geographical context in which the texts were written, we can unveil new layers of meaning that have sometimes been overlooked.
