Anti-christ Walks The Earth

Recommended Posts

This wasn't a great article. Let's go through it.This is the most important and true statement in the entire thing:

He keeps presenting this stuff as if this is wonderful new knowledge that has been kept from you backward lay people and this is the stuff your preachers don't have the guts to tell
Nothing presented is new. I heard this all from Dr. Hector Avalos in college.
"His take on the scriptures is a gift to the church because of his ability to articulate questions and challenges," says Rev. Guy Williams, a blogger who also happens to be a Methodist minister in Houston, Texas. "It gives us an opportunity to wrestle with the [bible's] claims and questions."
It's one of the reasons I love this forum. You guys help me sharpen my thoughts, so thank you.
In the first book of Corinthians, Ehrman says, the Apostle Paul insists that women should remain silent in church (1 Corinthians 14:35-36).In the 16th chapter of the book of Romans, Paul's attitude is that women could and should be church leaders -- and he cites women who were serving as deacons and apostles in the early church, Ehrman says."
This should PROVE to everyone that Paul wasn't against 'women'. Instead he was against the specific women causing problems in the Corinthian church. They were gossipers and they interrupted the church services constantly. Paul heard about this and told them that they should stay quiet to solve the problem. But his overall view toward women was good. I'm really not surprised that professors keep regurgitating this stuff, when they know the answers. It just sounds really good to say that something contradicts when it doesn't.
His claims, though, take on some of Christianity's most sacred tenets, like the resurrection of Jesus. Ehrman says he doesn't think the resurrection took place. There's no proof Jesus physically rose from the dead, and the resurrection stories contradict one another, he says.
Ok. There is no proof. Nothing new here.
The youth leader used a bottle of hotel shampoo to "anoint" his father, and tried to persuade his father to confess specific sins, Ehrman says. Ehrman says he was angry at the minister for acting "self-righteous" and "hypocritical."
It's too bad that his pastor was an idiot, and didn't know the Bible. Luckily for this professor he was never a Christian so nothing really changed.
Ehrman says he later became an agnostic because he couldn't find the answer to another question: How could there be a God when there is so much suffering in the world? An agnostic is one who disclaims any knowledge of God, but does not deny the possibility of God's existence.
Wow SHOCKING! The exact same thing all these people say. They need to read Nahum 1:1 - 1:7.
