I have a rather ironic story related to this, Jay. I rarely go on facebook, but I got sucked into a “rabbit hole” yesterday and found a scathing critique of BioLogos on the CMI website (I resisted the urge to carry out some heavy-duty “trolling” by reminding myself it would just be a waste of time!). The article used quite a bit of ammunition, including a quote from Kenton Sparks from a piece that he wrote for BioLogos in 2010. I’ll copy and paste quite a bit to give more context:
Though theologians seldom point this out, the fact that Jesus operated mainly within the horizon of his finite human horizon has other implications. If we assume for the sake of discussion that he was a carpenter like his father, did he ever miss the nail with his hammer? Hit his thumb? Did he think that he left his saw on the bench when, because he was distracted, he actually leaned it against the wall? Did Jesus ever look across a crowded town square and think that he saw his brother James only to discover that it was someone else? And did he estimate that the crowd was about 300 when it was really 200? To confess that Jesus was fully human is to admit that the answer to these questions must be yes. And if yes, then this observation surely has implications for how we think about Scripture. If Jesus as a finite human being erred from time to time, there is no reason at all to suppose that Moses, Paul, John wrote Scripture without error. Rather, we are wise to assume that the biblical authors expressed themselves as human beings writing from the perspectives of their own finite, broken horizons.

Jay, to you and I, this sounds quite shocking because of our conservative backgrounds emphasizing the divine nature of Jesus. I would even guess this is not the position of most of the “regulars” here. But I think it is important and healthy to have different backgrounds, views, and opinions. We may not agree with everything everyone else says (sorry, @gbrooks9!), but this forum would be completely useless if everyone had the exact same opinions!
