  1. I have been involved in prison ministry for 14 years and visit men on the Death Row of State Prisons. One inmate there told me that “the Bible” has ruined his faith. When I questioned him about this, I came to understand that this individual had been reading Ehrman’s books and now believes that Christianity is a sham. This inmate is now an Atheist, and his journey to this position was influenced by Mr Ehrman, who by the way, published this tripe for money. He knows that it falls short of “real” scholarship but he also knows how sensationalism “sells”.

    1 Tim 6:10
    For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    May God help us all!

  2. I liked it. Thanks. It will take another listen or two to absorb more fully.

    The man who taught me Greek had been a student of Metzger’s, and thought well of him. I think it sad that, for all Metzger’s labors, such a pathetic paint-thin ideologue as Ehrman is known as his protege.

    It is illustrative of the Fuller-factor, isn’t it — which is equally the early Princeton-factor, and the factor of dozens of apostatizing institutions? Professor A shifts his position from inerrancy, yet inconsistently retains the other fundamentals. Then Student A absorbs the professor’s principles and applies them with greater consistency, and begins jettisoning fundamentals.
