Jim Tailor BS: The flaw in Christian Theology (210* d) RE: BS: The flaw in Christian Theology 01 Feb 05


I agree with your post (above) SO much, that I really hate to point out (because it makes me feel like an ungracious bore) that, even within it is contained the very thing it so brilliantly warns against.

"True enough, some Christians, generally those of the fundamentalist or non-deep-thinking variety do often believe that the mythology is literally true."

Is written in just such a way as to assume fundamentalists are non-deep-thinking (to have the other interpretation the word "variety" would have to be duplicated before each class). Further, that other's characterization/definition of even the word "literal" has been made for, not by, the fundamentalist -- when it is that very definition which marks the difference between thoughtful and un.

I can assure you that I know MANY thoughtful, deep-thinking people who would still consider themselves "fundamentalists".

Have a fine day!
