    @Pierre,

    McGrath is a liberal Christian, and as such he has no problem identifying, even declaring from the rooftops, that the bible is the word of ancient people who reflected on God and His activities and will for man according to the ideas and conventions of their time, many of which were mistaken and ill-conceived.

    One example of McGrath’s approach to the Bible highlights nicely the “authority” it has in his mind, i.e. he once argued that although the Apostle Paul taught that same-sex unions are sinful, we can rethink that today using Paul’s *style* of argumentation, and that if we thereby reverse that teaching for our time, we would be doing something very Pauline. In short, he used the writings of Paul to promote that which Paul himself rejected, while giving it something like a stamp of Pauline approval.

    So Mr.Dale Tuggy is James implying that the Bible is not historical accurate and built upon ancient myths, what would that say about the Dead Sea Scrolls?
