Do the errors in scripture mean we shouldn’t trust it?

Modernist-Fundamentalist Christians in the early 20th century challenged two centuries of critical scholarship by declaring scripture to be inerrant. This inerrancy became, in the later 20th century, a belief that every word in the Bible is correct, an extreme sort of inerrancy that goes beyond the general teachings of scripture down to the exact languageContinue reading “Do the errors in scripture mean we shouldn’t trust it?”

Who founded Christianity?

You might think that the answer to this question is obvious: Jesus, but you’d be wrong. Jesus did not found a religion.

Thomas Aquinas, Quantum Physics, and the Nature of Reality

I am a big fan of Thomas Aquinas, the 13th century Saint and philosopher. Aquinas is known for his arguments in favor of the existence of God and his seminal work Summa Theologica.
