Does Higher Criticism Attempt to “Destroy the Bible”? Addendum A
I’m still planning on a couple of more posts in this series to finish it up. Perhaps, judging on some of the comments, a few thoughts on the effects of biblical scholarship might be in order as well.
I thought I would offer a short addendum displaying the sort of attitude I believe is prevalent in more fundamental evangelical churches. I could be wrong, but it seems to me I run into this sort of attitude very often.
In the videos, Chuck assures his audience that the Documentary Hypothesis (DH) comes from “subversive” scholars and has been “shredded” and, of course, they need not bother reading any of the extremely “boring” books on the DH, they can rather take his word that it has been “shredded.” Or they can believe Jesus.
It seems I keep hearing “thinkers” all across the ideological spectrum who are encouraging people not to think! Whatever you do: do not look at the evidence!
I think I’m going to record Missler’s “argument” to a transcript and submit it to a bunch of academic journals under the name Dr. Chris Tilling. Should be fun.
