Pete Enns is hosting a very interesting series of blog posts on his blog under the theme of "aha moments," where scholars and non-scholars alike are (or will be) discussing the process that took them away from an overly conservative reading of Scripture. Don't miss the latest installment, from the Jesus Blog's own Dr Anthony Le Donne. It includes such classics as:
"Lust was a big deal when I was an adolescent. For boys of a certain age, lust is a fulltime job."
"Jesus told me that if my right eye continued to sin, I should pluck it out. And here I was looking upon Linda Carter with both eyes!"
"But any way you slice it, Ezra 9-10 is deeply troubling—especially so to folks with an owner’s manual view of the Bible."
"A high view of Scripture—for me at least—is one that views the Bible as much more than an owner’s manual."
This entry in the "aha moments" series shows why it was such a privilege to work alongside Anthony for two years.
