I suggest that you open up a dictionary -- even though that often does
not work on the ASA list. Look up the definitions of "conservative" and
"liberal". Apply those definitions to theology and -- lo and behold-- you
have the definitions of "conservative theology" and "liberal theology".
The amazing thing is that it works for almost subject (Theology, Politics,
School System, Ethics, etc.)
Both substitute a canned philosophy for thinking and are therefore
I prefer the "libertarian" outlook. Nobody gets to tell me what to think
