The Vigin Birth: A Cautionary Tale

Ben Myers has an interesting post here about a post he had written seven years ago and his view now concerning the virgin birth. Here is one paragraph from the post that I think aspiring bloggers and budding theologians should read carefully.

"I guess all I'm trying to say is that I used to be a lot more cynical and sophisticated than I am today. As one of the saints has said, "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now." Nowadays, to be honest, I'm just very grateful to be a Christian at all. Three-legged tables are fine, as far as they go. But you can rely implicitly on the ones with four legs; that's the kind you want when you're sitting down in the comfort of your own home, day after day, a table just like the one your grandfather used, and just like the one your great-grandchildren will use too, long after you've left the world and gone to that big dinner table in the sky."

Make sure to read the rest of the post as well.
