A muddled mess...
(Tim) Really, this article is precious. What a perfect demonstration of a journalist's muddle-headed misunderstanding compounded by some who are playing to the masses and others who are seeking to limit any possible legal liability.
The Inquirer reports Enn's book, Inspiration and Incarnation, is a problem because it "encourages Bible-believing Christians to accept that the Bible was the work of both humans and God."
Well, first; not to put too fine a point on it, but have you all noticed that we can't call the race by the name God gave it any more? It's not "adam" or "man," but "humans." In this case it's particularly funny because we're talking about the Bible, the book "holy men wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit."
And second, is the journalist really so ignorant as to think that anyone in history, let alone the good souls of Westminster, actually deny the Bible is the work of both God and man?
Maybe when he interviewed some at the center of the controversy, one or two were misleading in their descriptions of their opponents' position.
So, let's get this clear: Enns has "graduate degrees from Harvard, he had tenure, and he is "progressive" in his "approach" to the Bible. Hmmm.
Well, shoot; leave Westminster to all the ignoramuses who are trying to turn back the clock. The rest of us can move over to Hatfield Seminary, that center of all-things-progressive where John Francke is busy as a bee providing cover for all the young Submergent dudes.
Regardless of who bears what proportion of blame, this article is so bad that those who read it are likely to be less informed when they finish than they were before they started.
The Inquirer concludes with this howler: "Westminster was founded in 1929 by several former faculty of Princeton Theological Seminary dismayed by that school's perceived liberal turn."
