But here’s your Dilly-
The ‘Seven Spirits’ of God as referenced only in the Book of Revelation have absolutely NOTHING to do with what you think they do. Please, leave interpretation of Scripture alone. Here’s your Dilly…
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.
As time goes on, Mark Taylor‘s prophecies are getting increasingly incoherent. It’s almost as if he needs to convolute his prophecies more and more so it’s more difficult to point out the fact that they never come true. Either way, we … Continue reading
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
Joe is what happens when ignorant dilettantism meets biblical proclamation. So, in recognition of your utter unsuitedness to any sort of pastoral task, here’s your Dilly, Joe!
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
No you aren’t. No he isn’t. So here’s your Dilly!
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
If you need an example of the phenomenon in historical Jesus studies known as ‘gazing into the well and seeing one’s own reflection,’ this is it. That isn’t Jesus that Fugelsang sees, but himself. The historical Jesus is unknowable. We … Continue reading
I just wish I knew who the commentator was. Because if anyone deserves a dilly it’s him.
Another Dilettante Who’s Pretending to Be A Biblical Exegete: The ‘Prof’ Who Accuses God of Raping Mary
And make no mistake, that’s exactly what Sprankle is saying. No consent = rape. But what the imbecile ignores is that Mary does in fact give consent to the operation of the Holy Spirit: Mary said, ‘You see before you … Continue reading
It’s an essay, on the bible, about the ‘virgin birth’, by, now get this, not a biblical scholar, but by a psychologist! Hey, Raw Story, why not get a climate change denier to write an essay about the weather? Or … Continue reading
They are dilettantes of the most dilettantish sort. That’s what they should be called. So I will. And here’s their award, and yours, Mr Butters, for calling them scholars in the first place. ‘Congrats’. I haven’t given out a Dilly … Continue reading
Don’t read too much of this idiocy, it will infuriate you and your head will explode. Suffice to say, these people are pure dilettantes. So here’s their award: And here’s my response to the whole stupid thing:
It’s been a while since I’ve awarded a Dilly to anyone (sorry about that). But thanks to Deane Galbraith, I proffer this as a worthy recipient: The author of this dissertation received a doctorate at an American university in February … Continue reading
I haven’t seen a more ignorant statement on the subject of theology for a good while. So, precious heretical Canadian modalist, here’s your Dilly. It’s well deserved.
This is what happens when people who don’t read the Bible talk about or write about the Bible- Earliest mosaic of Jonah and the whale found in Galilee synagogue Nope. Unprecedented depictions of the biblical Jonah and the whale have … Continue reading
The story of Adam and Eve isn’t a marriage relationship manual. So please, shut up. Oh, and here’s your Dilly.
