Is there material worth studying in the Christian scriptures? I think so.
Is there much appetite on the net for this kind of study? Among Friends & acquaintances? Maybe someone can give me an estimate of how many lurkers we have here; maybe there’re more than I think. Maybe the problem is merely one of encouraging them to speak up and make fools of themselves like the rest of us?
We need more people contributing to this site! We couldn’t afford to lose David, but we have, and my appetite for slogging through Mark: start at the beginning, go on to the end, then stop!–isn’t what I thought it would be.
What are we reading this stuff for? Is this–and nothing else–the “Word of God”?–or as George Fox put it, at least “words of God”? What does that mean? If we stare at these books long enough, do we reach Truth somehow?
What’s central here? Is there a coherent story that accounts for the existence of these materials, the inspiration together with the narrow misunderstandings? What part of this do we most need to study, for what reason?
How do we all see what we’re trying to do with this? Comments, anyone?
