« The Kalashnikover Rebbe: "What is the shechinah?" | Main | "Dear Departed," (by Amy Gerstler) »

In the last 20 years this has been challenged. Even within my own seminary-Dallas Theological Seminary, this has been challenged. But it is not primarily being challenged because of a difference in the interpretation of a particular verse (lower criticism) but rather a difference of hermeneutic (higher criticism), meaning that the Bible was true then for that time, but not for ours. The hole in the theological dike here is obvious. At what point do we say what is now outdated? Something is ended only if Scripture says it is ended. That was not the way I was brought up. When I was in college we had to write in our Bibles and because I could not bring myself to do that in a pristine copy, I got a used hardcover study Bible complete with full-color pictures and commentaries. It was already highlighted and written in, but not much. It is still the copy I use to study my Bible and the one I bring to each Bible study even though it is bulky and heavy, but over the last couple decades, it has been thoroughly highlighted and written in. It has been a great blessing and I fully agree with Pastor Brian. If you haven’t experienced this blessing yet, perhaps you too were taught that you should never write on the word of God (or any book), then go ahead and jump right in. Perhaps you’ll want to get a used copy as I did.

Personally I wouldn't believe a word Pastor Brian says. The laurels go to her who declared that need for god surpasses belief as both cause and effect.
