Value of experience?
I agree with Harold N. Miller (“Scripture Overrules Experience,” March 27) that we need to take Scripture most seriously in times of ethical discernment. But I wonder what he would have done had he been resting comfortably in the Confession of Faith (Deut. 23:1) and been confronted with the situation described in Isaiah 56:3-5. And it seems to me that in Acts 8:36-38 Philip must have been following Isaiah 56 instead of Deuteronomy 23.
