Heresy among evangelicals of our day

First Things reports on a survey done by Christianity Today. The report indicates that many evangelical Christians hold views that the historic church has labeled as heresies. The report also indicates the probable reason for most of this unfortunate situation. That is that many evangelicals interpret the idea of scripture as the basis of belief as meaning "I should interpret scripture entirely for myself," rather than "I should temper my interpretation of scripture with what other Christians believe now, and have believed."

As Peter said, a long time ago, scripture should not be interpreted privately.

Thanks for reading.

We have to be very careful.

Yes, and not only evangelicals should be. Thanks.
