Response to Are you 'projecting' your own circular reasoning?

 


How the Interpretation of "Scripture"...
By referring TO "Scripture"...
With total disregard to the historical context...
Within which the "Scripture" was written...
Is, in fact...
-- Circular Reasoning...
Which leads to...
-- Error.

You have not done the same regarding MY assertion that...
A knowledge of the Proper Historical Context...
Is Integral to the Proper Interpretation of...
-- Biblical Texts.

And, please...
Let us make this perfectly clear here...
When YOU refer to "Scripture"...
You are NOT referring to "any piece of writing"...
As you have just stated...
You Said: Scripture is any piece of writing
that has recognition as being of a spiritual or religious nature.
But, rather...
You are, in fact...
Referring ONLY to those texts which are recognized by...
-- Traditional Christianity.

For instance...
In your mind...
Do...
-- The Vedas...
-- The Koran...
Or...
-- The Tao Te Ching...
Hold the same value as the collection of texts referred to as...
-- The Bible...?

Each one IS, after all...
-- "A piece of writing that has recognition as being of a spiritual or religious nature."
To Many People across the Globe.
