Holy Scripture [Jun. 21st, 2011|11:23 am]
Tony Grist
I attended theological college in the 1970s- where I was taught that the old testament is unhistorical, the gospels utterly unreliable, the sayings of Jesus plagiarised  and the whole Bible (though it wasn't put that way) a crazy patchwork of lies and forgeries.  I was then expected to go out and preach from it as if I believed it was the Word of God.

It did my head in. 

When I became a witch I made a virtue out of there being no such thing as a Wiccan scripture.

When I read Lossky, he made a big deal out of the direct revelation of God on Earth through practice of religion. I think that's the best you could do in that instance, at which point, though, I don't see much reason to lighten your backpack and chuck the book itself.

Every once in a while, I feel an urge to preach, which is a strange thing for an atheist.

It's a good feeling, up there in the pulpit, with all those expectant faces tilted up towards you..
