Some People Need to Learn to Distinguish Between the Words of Jesus and the Words of His Interpreters

Like Leithart who, without justification or reason, has read John’s rendition of the prayer of Jesus in Chapter 17 of his Gospel as a roadmap of Jesus himself for the future of his Church. Some ‘theologians’ are genuinely awful at … Continue reading

It’s Been A Week Since NT Wright’s Last Bilge Spewed From the (Author)Ship’s Bowels…

I Wouldn’t Read Ed Young’s Book if the Publisher Flew Me to Tahiti For a Year Long Vacation

First, Young is a miserable ‘theologian’.  That reason alone is enough to keep me from reading his Dreck.  Second, he’s an egomaniacal self-promoter who knows nothing of the Gospel.  Need proof?  Here’s a tweet which he paid to promote which … Continue reading

Cashing in on ‘The Bible’: Downey and Burnett Book-ify Their Rubbish
