We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

Parable of the Seed (Mark 4:26-29)

A new posting in the Mark series at Rom Phra Khun Bible.  I want to continue to encourage regular readers (and irregulars too!) to follow the Mark series.  One of the things we in the Protestant mainline (a.k.a. oldline) must do if we are to regain a sense of being a faith movement is to figure out how the Bible fits into the equation of a contemporary faith.  One important element in that task is discovering the historiographical nature of the gospels, which is what these postings at Rom Phra Khun Bible seek to do.
