What Biblical Scholars Do

Bob Cargill wrote on Facebook, “I’m a biblical scholar. One of my jobs is to show people evidence from the book they supposedly revere that certain claims they make aren’t possible because of what it says in the text they supposedly revere.” He then added the challenge, “Meme THAT,” and several people did.

Politicized Christianity’s Pact With The Devil

Having recently shared some thoughts on the separation of church and state, and the politicization of religion, in relation to the Pew survey data that was published recently, I thought I would also re-share the meme above, which I made a few years ago, and shared in a post called “Possibly the Most Interesting Pact [Read More…]
