Read the Bible with New Eyes

Most of what you have been taught about the Bible — especially by modern experts — is wrong. The dumb things John Dickson said about Genesis 1 on ABCTV this week are a prime example. Academics are capable of astounding levels of cognitive dissonance. Yes, the texts are ancient, but the ancients weren’t idiots, especially when it came to chronology. Treating the text as a myth throws the entire Bible’s chronology out the window. It’s not the ancients who are the idiots in this case.

Here’s four talks given this week in London by James Jordan. Let him clear away the clutter for you, especially if you are in ministry and have been taught some of the incredibly dumb things invented by those well-meaning but misguided modernist dunderheads in the academies. Learn to read the Bible with new eyes…

How To Read The Bible For The First Time … Again

    Wow. I must have been in a mood. Perhaps it’s time to show less respect to these ideas that have no respect for the Word of God. Plenty of destructive nonsense comes wrapped in respectable academia.

    Listen to the talks. :)

    Thanks Mike. You refrained from expletives, but I sense you were close. I’ll be listening with interest. I missed Dickson on ABC. What was the gist?

  • Mike Bull Says:

    Ha! Dickson made out that the problem with Creationism is one of education. He’s sincere and I have a lot of respect for him, but he’s also too dumb to realize when he’s totally sold the farm. (You can probably still catch Q&A on iView at Dickson was by far the smartest guy on the panel though. The others can’t see how restrictive their worldview is, which is both frustrating and hilarious.

    Any compromise puts us into the atheist boxing ring, on their turf. Genesis 1 as history puts them on our turf, on the earth that the saints will inherit, and under a very, very bright light. Their defense is just that old debunked ANE garbage. Here’s somebody on their site who is, let’s say, ANE retentive:

    It says “from an ANE perspective” but that’s a lie. It’s from a modernist perspective, one entirely given over to evolution, which, as my friend Tim Nichols says, is merely “Enuma Elish baptized in post-Enlightenment balloon juice.”

    Anyhow, the lectures are very friendly and very helpful. And my sledgehammer intro did get around 4000 hits yesterday, so I figure it’s worth calling a spade a spade sometimes. Though I won’t go so far as Saint Nicholas and punch anybody out.

  • Mike Bull Says:

    One more comment – cognitive dissonance is actually distress caused by holding two conflicting ideas. I guess that means education in a theological academy makes one numb to this condition. Education in this case is intellectual morphine. Although it seems to spread to others, in which case it is leprosy for the brain.

  • Simon Kennedy Says:

    Thanks for that Mike. I was going to check it out on iView: except I don’t know which program it was! Dickson is a Moore College man, I believe … Another Moore man I know is keen on the evolution/creation fusion. Is that their bag at Moore?

  • Mike Bull Says:

    Here’s the link:

    The ep is currently on the right, beginning with Tanya Plibersek.

    It’s a mixed bag at Moore, but the actual science of creationism seems to be ignored.

  • Simon Kennedy Says:

    Appreciate your help, Mike. Lectures, iView, Tanya Pilibersek … everything. I owe you a beer. Or a coffee, depending on the time of day.

  • Mike Bull Says:

    No problems. This sort of bread and oil and wine never runs out.
