On Lying Literalists

I liked this quote:

Bible believers do not believe in the Bible. They accept the message they wish to hear, that God loves those who are rewarded with wealth, but the message of Amos they have little time for. … Be careful before becoming a Bible believer – it is not always a comfortable place to be!

While I do know people who use the label “Bible believer” and really mean it, in my experience the louder one uses that label, the less likely it is to be accurate.  (Perhaps the opening verses of Matthew 6 apply here.)

Go read the whole thing.
