critically thinking about the bible is the way of the devil, you know.
Near as I can tell, among the inerrantist crowd, critically thinking about anything is the way of the devil.

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. -- Thomas Jefferson
We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat
It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate
...creationists have a great way to detect fraud and it doesn't take 8 or 40 years or even a scientific degree to spot the fraud--'if it disagrees with the bible then it is wrong'.... -- archaeologist

Re: The topic
Not at all. It is a question of the credibility of the message. If someone who through the resurrection is confirmed as messiah, the annointed one of God, then we are obviously more inclined to accept the message than if someone like me was going around talking about what God wants of us.
If there is no resurrection then why is his message any more important than anyone else?
I critically evaluate every important message upon which I will base significant life decision, regardless of the source. Who says something isn't nearly as important to me as what they say. If his message is more important, it's because of what he said.
Blindly trusting something someone says because of who they are leads to disaster.
