SOOO, as I stated formerly, my life pretty much revolves around school these days. Here are a few gems from my Theology class this morning, all uttered by the prof:
"YHWH is an amalgam of the gods of the middle east."
"The Trinity as the concept we see today did not arise until about the fourth century, as an interpretation of the Greek texts. That's not what the original New Testament means at all."
"The Bible is a literary truth, not a historical truth."
"We can't say ours is the only way, and that it never changes, and that we know it all. Of course it changes! It changes all the time!"
"The Pope is absolutizing something that is only a part of the piece."
Anyone know how to deal with these?
Blackwolf: There are many paths to the same place. Trust me.
Hotchner: Just so you know, you sound like a fortune cookie.
