Assuming a Spherical Bible

The blog psnt.net had a post on not assuming a spherical Jesus, which inspired me to explore the same analogy with the Bible, leading me to draw this cartoon.

Childlike Faith in Action

From SMBC via Jerry Coyne How the idea that “childlike faith” is unquestioning faith ever caught on is beyond me. Anyone who has had children or remembers being  a child ought to know better. The Book of Job concludes with a stamp of divine approval being given to Job’s questioning while disapproval is expressed for [Read More...]
