Liberalism

I will start by looking at Liberalism in the church.  In what follows I am going to draw on the writing of others, as I believe that it is better to let people speak for themselves rather than to speak for them, and through lack of understanding, misspeak for them.

As I understand Liberalism it is founded upon the belief that the Bible needs to be interpreted using all the skills that we would use to interpret other old documents.  This allows for the development of understanding of the faith, rather than it being something once revealed, written down and true for all time.

Modern Church is an organisation within the church which speaks from a liberal position, and a couple of articles (here and here) explain what one of their members considers liberalism to be.
