Good morning nat,
Thanks for your interest. Whenever I hear the comments on being progressive
It sounds more like , the institutions ordained by God are ignored and being adjusted to fit the world today.
I see being progressive as going the wrong direction. In other words, maybe progressiveness shouldn’t be label we want for the church ,after all we want the church to be seen as different than the world . Don’t we. Thanks Nat.

I believe in the authority of scripture
Likewise, it’s teaching.
Jesus told
Peter that upon his confession, “thou art the Christ “ he will build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail. We can all take assurance that it will be as he said. It does seem somehow, being progressive ,that the church has embraced doctrine that is contrary to biblical principles..
What you are saying is hard for me to follow. I do think that you’re on to something.
Thanks for the pod. Chaz
