Our dilemma is that some insecure people are grimly determined to get other differing people to assent to some exclusively chosen assumptions, attitudes, beliefs, convictions, and hermeneutics as the standard "right" way to approach some chosen texts of scripture. Such grim people are prone to pass judgment upon, condemn, reject, exclude, alienate, and/or excommunicate creative non- conformists --- who will not tolerate the grim people's intolerance. The grim people are prone to play word games without respect for the realities to which graciously chosen words often point. We cannot help insecure people who go about their grim ways --- by attacking them, their ways, their ideas or their interpretations; for attacks make them more insecure, defensive, and grim. We can help insecure people by offering to share with them free gifts of true security enjoyed as the freedom to be safely vulnerable --- together in cooperative creative ventures.
