Can’t. Resist. Joke!

He’s not a tame liar.

As to this iteration of the Latest Real Jesus, Jimmy Akin does the autopsy on this particular work of projection and information filtering and how it presents us with a Jesus made in the image and likeness of Reza Aslan. Remember: all Latest Real Jesuses tell you only about the pet obsessions of their discoverers. They never tell you anything about the Jesus of the New Testament.

"“Confronted with a cancer or a slum the Pantheist can say, ‘If you could only ..."

Not coincidentally….
"No. I used "God-damned" with exacting theological precision to refer to God-damned sins, not sinners. ..."

Not coincidentally….
"Robert Woodman is claiming that Mark has been cursing and using God's name in vain ..."

Not coincidentally….
"So much for hating the sin and loving the sinner. Boy was Augustine dumb."

  • Aslan’s thesis is the same recycled claptrap long spouted by Enlightenment demythologizers and German historical critics. Sadly, historical illiteracy has left the general public defenseless against such well-marketed charlatans.

    One of Akin’s fourteen points suffices to debunk Zealot. Aslan claims to have written a historically accurate biography of Jesus despite also claiming to know only two historical facts about his subject. Such a work is more properly classified as historical fiction.

    I pointed a friend duped by Aslan’s appearance on Fox toward Akin’s piece. He rejected the whole article claiming that it was poorly sourced. There are no words.
