The Bible records an evolution of thought about God. Not a "straight-line" evolution, but one that moves in fits and starts, one step forward, two steps back, but it is there for those who have eyes to see. And the result is a very beautiful God indeed.
For Christians, the Bible is our sacred text. When Jesus read and taught from the Scriptures in his hometown of Nazareth however, the people were so enraged that they tried to throw him off a cliff! How can it be that some 'readings' of sacred texts can cause such a negative response? In this message, Russ Hewett applies the insights of Spiral Dynamics, an observational model of human social evolution to this question.
