Bible Wars: the Holy Bible is often under attack and often maligned. Like a drink that is spiked, a crop that is sabotaged or an artwork vandalized. Time and time again experts and novices alike seek to psychologize and dissect the Bible to fit a popular modern narrative that is as old as the hills. Anything to shake what Scripture proclaims to be foundational.
Many people are still on that same old road to Tarsus, they haven’t seen the light (love is blind) and that goes for mainstream media and what you could call pseudo, shallow or bodgy journalism/news. Dumbing down the public with bias should not be the modus operandi of a seemingly ‘trusted’ public broadcaster with its agenda and calls to pay attention to this and that.
The appeal to consensus is not a magic wand that makes contrasting realities disappear, neither is telling one side of the story.
[The origins of Christianity begin with the one eternal triune God. In the Old Testament we see the promises, in the New Testament a fulfilment and demonstration of those promises/covenant made by God. The Christ/Messiah was always part of the OT, many assumed a political or military event similar to David and not the sacrificial lamb that would defeat a much bigger enemy - death, Satan and the powers of hell.]
