Well just so we are on the same page here is Webster online definition of the Word de`con`struc´tion Pronunciation: dė`kŭn`strŭk´shŭn A philosophical theory of criticism (usually of literature or film) that seeks to expose deep-seated contradictions in a work by delving below its surface meaning. This method questions the ability of language to represent a fixed reality, and proposes that a text has no stable meaning because words only refer to other words, that metaphysical or ethnocentric assumptions about the meaning of words must be questioned, and words may be redefined in new contexts and new, equally valid and even contradictory meanings may be found. Such new interpretations may be based on the philosophical, political, or social implications of the words of a text, rather than solely on attempts to determine the author's intentions
In this modern ago let's use the word house ( home) as an example of what is happening with the Word of God and the Bible as it relates to mankind.
A house is constructed for what purpose? I know it seems ridiculous to even ask what the purpose of a house is for. But for the sake of this article hang tight with me so I can show you how we must be careful in this day of post modernism. A house is for people to live in. People take shelter from the elements and live in their homes. Inside the confines of the structure they find safety from the elements, rest for their bodies and a place to eat meals together. The house structure provides many things including but not limited to safety, protection and rest. Then comes the Emergent one and they say lets "re"construct the meaning of the home from what has been the traditional purpose or intent of the home. So now the emergent one might say, here is a home constructed and what do you feel the structure is for"? How do you feel about it? How does this structure speak to you? This home can mean anything to you since its structure is all relative to you.
So in essence an emergent post modern perspective is: the house can mean whatever you want it to mean for you. If the house speaks to you as a structure designed to house hundreds of plants to stay safe from the harsh elements of the outdoors where cats and dogs can live at peace under the roof, than that is the purpose of the "house" for you. Personally I would call that a greenhouse with a formula for a mess, but if that is what someone wanted to call a house then they would deconstruct it from the original meaning and reconstruct it to mean something other than it’s original meaning and purpose.
So many today are taking this kind of deconstructive approach to the 'Scriptures". To "de"construct the Bible is for it to mean to YOU whatever it speaks to you about. Even if the original author meant one thing it is acceptable now to let it "speak to us" another meaning than its original purpose. Thus we now live in the era of ”deconstructing" the meaning of the Bible and its Words.
A good biblical example of this is the creation in Genesis chapter 1-3. Genesis 1:3-5 says and God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning-the first day.
The list can go on and on of how men are deconstructing the bibles in this present generation. We need to be careful that in this day and age we do not allow the "emergent mystic preachers, teachers, professors and writers to "deconstruct” and “reconstruct” the bible to mean anything other than what God intended it to mean to us.
