“Where the Bible speaks, we speak.” Maybe this phrase is coming from your pastor, maybe it’s coming from Uncle Ron at the family cookout, maybe it’s coming from a Christian friend or coworker. No matter who is saying this to you, it almost certainly communicates their defense of the their religious and social views on the grounds that they have their origins in the Bible.
