When we use the words “biblical conservative” we automatically think of political stances. What we usually mean is, we don’t like legislation that is anti-biblical. We want a small government, who largely stays out of our affairs. We don’t like taxes and regulations and we want a big military, who can keep us safe so that we can enjoy liberty.
But I want us to think a bit differently about the term, at least for a moment. Let’s think about the term biblical conservative this way. As a person who conserves the Bible. So how do we as believers conserve the Bible? The word conserve means, “to maintain, keep, sustain, or continue.”
