Dilettante of The Year

That’s lunacy. It’s both historically ignorant and, worse, it implies that no one but English speakers have a real Bible. Utter nonsense and, frankly, demonic. This is this year’s dilettante.

When a Dilettante Teaches at a Seminary

This is what happens: This is what it looks like when a dilettante pretends to be an exegete.  The text is misrepresented in order to preserve an ideological viewpoint. Remember, just because a guy teaches at a Seminary doesn’t mean … Continue reading

Pentebabbleist the Fireman Pseudo-prophet At it Again With his Nutbag Ramblings

Wrong For Every Reason- So Here’s Your Dilly

There’s no such word in Greek. The dimwit has just transliterated what he thinks a Greek letter signifies into an English equivalent. He actually thinks psi = y. Dilettante ignoramus. No, it means you don’t know anything about Greek.  Here’s … Continue reading

What it Looks Like When False Teachers Talk About Theology

Instead of being accurate, they prefer to be crass and imbecilic.  If you’re unsure of why the ELCA is dying, look no further.  Bolz-Weber and her ilk are killing it off as fast as they can.

‘Rebar Bender’…

That has to be the best term to describe the self appointed untrained ‘experts’ that inhabit the internet that I have ever seen.  I expect to be using it rather a lot, interchangeably with dilettante.   Thank you, The Onion.

Don’t Do This, Publishers…

It just makes you look stupid.  That’s not Greek or English and those Greek letters spell nothing.  I realize you want it to look eye catching, and it is.  But for all the wrong reasons.  So stop it.

Barton Swaim is Why People Who Aren’t Biblical Scholars Shouldn’t Talk About the Bible or Biblical Scholarship

His ‘review’ of John Barton’s magnificent book is the sort of garbage that one expects of a dilettante who knows absolutely NOTHING about the field.  His assessment of Barton’s latest book is puerile and juvenile.  It’s as though he has … Continue reading

Dilly Award – the Dilettantish Publisher Edition

There’s so much wrong here, and they don’t even know it.  First of all, The Geneva Bible of 1599 is a revision of the 1564 edition.  Second, Luther had nothing to do with it.  Third, there’s no such thing as … Continue reading
