annunciation

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 06, 2006

The oil is by Philippe de Champaigne (c. 1644), the vinegar courtesy of Fr. Prosper Grech, O.S.A. (c. 1998), in wry acknowledgment of the contribution of form criticism to New Testament exegesis. Happy Advent.

    Irecall talking to an eminent Jesuit theologian many years ago about a scriptural meaning. He very quickly replied: "Don't let it worry you. It all a metaphor." He was one of the movers and shakers for theology at Berkeley.

    Step One:Scripture Alone Step Two:Scripture isn't true Step Three:Death of Christianity. I have discovered that Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) is alive and well in many practicing believing Catholics today. All you have to do to cure that misconception is read 16 very small pages in the Vatican 2 Document- Dei Verbum..... available free on line. Sola Scriptura always means there is no authority in the church - another rampant fallacy today.
