Reclaiming Christianity IV


Should be allow unbelievers to tell us what to read, believe, teach, preach?

Should we buy books by atheists and stack them in our homes, eagerly devoouring the writings of men and women hostile to the Gospel, and allowing those to shape our Biblical worldview?

Um… no.

You mean, you really wouldn’t read the writings of Richard Dawkins on the worldwide flood of Noah, and accept it as fact? Why not? It makes no sense not to!

Because you’re reading the writings of a great number of unbelievers when you open most books on Christianity. Study Bibles, etc.

So why should you accept the writings of a heretic like Andy Stanley? Bruce Metzger? Carlo Martini? Kurt and Barbara Aland? Julius Wellhausen? Eugene Nida? Robert Bratcher? C. H. Dodd? Karl Barth?
