Wonderful to have some "cognitive dissonance", found it really helpful in many a denominational construct amongst a number of other items.
A few years ago it was fairly popular practice for Bible teachers to claim to find in the Scriptures confirmation of almost every new discovery made by science. Apparently no one noticed that the scientist had to find it before the Bible teacher could, and it never seemed to occur to anyone to wonder why, if it was there in the Bible in such plain sight, it took several thousand years and the help of science before anyone saw it.Now, I believe that everything in the Bible is true, but to attempt to make it a textbook for science is to misunderstand it completely and tragically. The purpose of the Bible is to bring men to Christ, to make them holy and prepare them for heaven. In this it is unique among books, and it always fulfills its purpose when it is read in faith and obedience.A.W. Tozer
My questions, concerning apologists and apologetics, are...[b]Does God need our arguments to defend Him?Should we be scrambling to formulate worldly arguments to convict the world of spiritual issues?[/b]
