Bart Ehrman’s Smoke Screen


Bart Ehrman’s Smoke Screen

by Billy Dyer

For those of you who don’t know, Bart Ehrman is a New Testament Scholar and an Agnostic. An agnostic is basically an uncommitted fence-rider. That is, they claim that they don’t know whether there is a god(s) or not. Bart Ehrman grew up in a Christian environment, went to seminary and even got his PHD from Princenton by studying under Bruce Metzger. For those of you who don’t know Bruce suffice it to say that he is one of the leading New Testament manuscript scholars in America and probably in the world.

Bart likes to boast of his intellectual honesty. I have read multiple books by him and he seems to always put forth this story of an honest man searching for truth and letting it lead him anywhere even if he didn’t like the destination. Now I don’t know the man’s heart but I guess we have to take him at his word on this much. He tells a story of being, what he claims, a fundamentalist. That is, a Bible believing Christian. But as he furthered his studies he came to realize all the contradictions in the Bible, how it has been changed and so forth. He learned all the “secret” things that preachers know but don’t like to tell their congregations.

Then I came across a very candid paragraph in the latest book I am reading…
