You don't know something until you can distinguish it from something else. "Battle of [for?] the Bible" (1970s) = arguments whether the Bible is verbally inspired and inerrant, or not. Remember: the original manuscripts were inspired, and the ones we have today are NOT corrupted, just copied doggone well.
Liberal theologians disregard smaller miracles (like Jonah and the large fish--not a whale!) while claiming belief in the most incredible miracle: Jesus, virgin-born, dying for the sins of the world.
Treasure 1: Scripture truth. The Bible is verbally inspired (see above) and inerrant. Words carry truth, not "impact," "emotion," etc. Modern culture does not accept this. 2 Peter 1:21.
Treasure 2: Christocentrism. Scripture, doctrine, and life are all centered around Christ. 1 Cor. 1:23. Worship none other. Not generic spirituality. More key than the glory of God. Neither is the Bible about good parenting, say. ("10 Steps To ...")
Treasure 3: Sacramental. Sacraments forgive sins (e.g. 1 Peter 3:21). Body and blood of Christ are truly present in the Lord's Supper. American Evangelicals say that sacraments turn people off... Liberal Lutherans are ritual-heavy because it's the only thing they have left.
