Six ways liberal theologians interpret the Bible in an unorthodox way

Here are six ways liberal theologians interpret the Bible in an unorthodox way:

1. They deny the supernatural.

2. They maximize emphasis on the human authors of Scripture while playing down or denying an overall divine Author.

3. They read Scripture solely as a natural man would encounter it and deny any role of the Holy Spirit or regeneration (having eyes to see, ears to hear) playing a necessary part in it.

4. They atomize (fragment) the various books and parts of the Bible and deny any unified nature of the entirety of Scripture.

5. They treat the Bible as any other human document, looking down on it rather than looking up to it (with the corollary of demanding it have only the authority of man - scholars - in it rather than the authority of God).

6. They deny the Bible can be understood in any propositional way and instead propose that it's really about how the reader responds in the reader's unique way to what he encounters in Scripture (this is all fuzzy and has different theories attached to it).

[Some of these taken from Nathan Pitchford's The Reformers' Hermeneutic: Grammatical, Historical, and Christ-Centered; which can be found in this collection.]
