Stephen Colbert. Say what you want, this guy... this guy.
Mr. Colbert has on his show the other day Bart D. Ehrman. Mr. Ehrman suggests that the Bible, specifically the accounts about Jesus, are all a bunch of hooey. He suggests the following.
- The authors of the New Testament have diverging views about who Jesus was and how salvation works
- The New Testament contains books that were forged in the names of the apostles by Christian writers who lived decades later
- Jesus, Paul, Matthew, and John all represented fundamentally different religions
- Established Christian doctrines—such as the suffering messiah, the divinity of Jesus, and the trinity—were the inventions of still later theologians
A big thank you to Carina!
