(About the Truth of Scripture)
- “Personally as a postmodern I try to stay away from the history question and treat everything I read in Scripture especially as story.”
(Again about the Truth of God's Word)
- “When it comes to Paul, we have to remember who we're dealing with: the radical Jew who oversaw the stoning of Stephen; who went around the countryside to arrest Christians; a man who, even converted, was a zealot for his faith. Certainly Paul's witness is important; certainly Paul is not infallible. I simply think he got this one wrong.”
(About what Christ said in Scripture)
- "we don't have the words of Jesus. We have what the Gospel writers report about what Jesus said - and, most likely, in a language (Greek) that is different from what Jesus used (Aramaic). We have the authors interpretation of Jesus' words."
(About what God has said in Scripture about creation)
- “God has said nothing. God preserved for us a Jahwist tradition about creation from about 950 BC and a Priestly tradition (based loosely on a Babylonian creation story) from 600-500 BC. God didn't write either of them. They didn't come to us like tablets of stone from a mountain. The words weren't written on a wall like in Daniel.”
(Again about God's creation account)
- “no marriage the garden, just companionship. Of course God put A & E together, there was no one else. Except those women that Cain and Abel found. Oh, gee... maybe the creation story (s) is a myth?”
