"Our stance is submission to whatever the text says, regardless of what that means for our thinking and lifestyle. We are using a slippery escape when we distort the interpretation so that it fits our predispositions; we are not finding a slippery escape when we accept the text as it stands, regardless of its implications for life. Every honest interpreter can give countless examples of find himself or herself to be simply wrong and in need of God's grace as a result of reading the Bible with the purpose of hearing God's word." ~ Scot McKnight; The NIV Application Commentary: Galatians; p. 56
