Confronting Religious Absolutism
Papal Infallibility and Biblical Inerrancy are Victorian inventions, not classic teaching. They provide the conceptual foundations of modernist theocracy, which is to say religiously based totalitarianism. What's the alternative? Religious faith is rooted in moral imagination, whose primary language is symbolic. That's the teaching of Christian humanism, a tradition of biblical scholarship going back to the 1300s.
