Twitter Theology That Makes Me Sigh
Asking the question… merely asking the question… a question which no other field would even ponder for a moment (or do you think anyone has ever said to a physician or a lawyer or any other skilled professional ‘do you think someone without training in your field should be allowed to practice it?’) betrays an abiding anti-intellectualism in the field of theology and biblical studies that is simply reprehensible and the root cause of the rampant biblical illiteracy and theological stupidity so widely on display at present.
Ignorance is never desirable.
If you have no education in a discipline, you shouldn’t be involved in the public practice of that discipline. Period. Full stop. The end. Finis.
