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.

I took it, passed with a 29. Strange, though, that so many quotes were taken out of context, especially in cases where Jesus's message had to do with the setting of priorities. Just a thought.

Yes, I thought the same. The intention was to show the Bible in the worst possible light. The compiler didn't play fair.
