God’s Judgment on Roy Moore

God has brought Moore to the financial gallows and hanged him thereupon. Because Moore is a morally reprehensible reprobate.

That, at any rate, is what the fundamentalist supporters of Moore would say if Obama were to be financially ruined and forced to beg for money on facebook.

Funny, isn’t it, how it’s never God’s judgement when ruin strikes a fundamentalist…

The Morning Session

In all some good papers although it has to be said that in some respects biblical scholarship doesn’t seem to have moved forward from the 20’s. Were still talking about things that occupied scholars generations ago. We need to move on or we will become irrelevant even to ourselves.

I’m filled with hope that Jacob Wright’s plenary address here in a few minutes will be a step in the right direction. His paper is titled ‘What Truths do Biblical Scholarship Seek to Discern‘. Indeed.

More anon.
