Is anyone here equated with the work of Hector Avalos, who argues that the Bible is completely irrelevant to modern life, and that biblical studies, should change it’s focus to removing the Bible from human life?
Are there any good responses to his work?
From what I’ve read, Avalos, seems like a fundamentalist, who believes anything which isn’t pragmatic to helping humanity should be rejected. I honestly find that even if the Bible isn’t relevant as a moral guide, it can still be studied as a work of literature.
But even so, I find the Bible is relevant based on the fact that it gives us a transcendent value for human life, something missing in the modern world.
