"…a religious "conservative" (to use broad, clumsy and wholly inadequate language) is someone who believes that faith is primarily a belief system mediated by an infallible Bible. The reward for believing the right things is forgiveness of sins and certain knowledge of eternal life.

A religious liberal, in contrast, is someone who believes that faith is primarily about the transformation of self and society through the wisdom of spiritual truth. Liberals emphasize inclusion, social justice, and transformation over individual salvation, and resist all exclusive religious claims.”
