When Christians Disagree about Interpretation

“What happens when sincere Christians disagree, inevitable once one has abandoned the idea of an infallible human interpreter? If the interpretation rejects a matter central to the gospel, then it is to be rejected as unorthodox or heretical. If the explanation falls within “the analogy of faith,’ then Christian charity requires one to withhold criticism more severe than saying, ‘In my judgment, this interpretation is in error, but it is within the bounds of orthodoxy.'” -Kendell Easley, 52 Words Every Christian Should Know
