Biblical Authority: A Rule of Thumb

Rule: In general, the more someone relies on the Bible for moral or political authority, the more they have to hope no one actually reads the Bible.

(As I was moving my car today I heard Mike Huckabee saying some demonstrably false things.)

It’s actually a pretty safe gamble. The Bible is very long and parts of it are super boring/not really comprehensible.
