Scriptural Originalism

Searching for the meaning of Scripture

Originalism is a legal philosophy that the words in documents and especially the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted as they were understood at the time they were written by those that framed and ratified the Constitution and its various amendments. Many evangelicals have embraced a non-originalist approach to Scripture. It is little wonder, then, that like the retreating morality of the Western world since becoming unglued from its biblical worldview, the church also finds itself on foundations of quicksand as it tries to defend Christian values.
