GUEST,Pete from seven stars link BS: Gravity solved? (258* d) RE: BS: Gravity solved? 13 Feb 16


Biblical literalism is a somewhat vague expression but if you mean reading narrative as narrative , poetry as poetry , proverbs as proverbs etc , then that is my position. And I don't agree that that is a modern phenomenon . The church fathers , though prone to excessive allergories sometimes, were biblical creationists , and according to the gospels Jesus affirmed the genesis account. The article did however, make some valid points, like the tendency of many charismatics to ask what the bible says to them without finding out what it meant to the original hearers. But I fail to see how the original hearers would understand the teaching of the narrative parts of scripture as allegory !
