An observation to that attitude was made at Pastoral Musings. His main point is great:
The true issue is this; when we read the Bible as it presents itself to us we find that it is confessional in nature. It calls for us to believe in a Creator who is omnipotent, transcendent, omnipresent, benevolent, righteous, and holy. There are many other things we are called to believe, as well.I chuckled upon reading the post having had the same thoughts. Check out the post.
Not only so, but the Bible claims that it can only be truly understood by people who are believers.…I find it somewhat strange, then, that those who do not believe in Jesus should complain about people who do believe in Jesus meeting with the SBL, presenting papers, and having meetings in conjunction with SBL.
