Friday Phraseology: Liberalism


Liberalism (theological): Movement in Protestant *theology since the nineteenth century that is dominated by the goal of modifying Christianity so as to make it consistent with modern culture and science. Liberalism rejects the traditional view of Scripture as an authoritative propositional *revelation from God in favor of a view that sees revelation as a record of the evolving *religious experiences of humankind. It sees Jesus more as ethical teacher and model rather than as divine atoner and redeemer.
