THE NEWPROTEST TRANSLATION

I've started another section on my blog: theology. It's officially titled "Cynical Theology," because it's meant to challenge assumptions about the Bible in a critical but respectful way. This is a bit of a passion of mine, because I feel that there's a difference between believing the scriptures (which I do) and believing particular interpretations of scriptures, which may or may not align with reality. Aligning with reality bears a great deal of importance if you plan on taking the text seriously -- otherwise, the Christian faith is an arbitrary faith.
So this is a starting point. My current bible study group is trekking through Genesis right now, and there's a ton of stuff that we've dug out that has opened my eyes to new ways of looking at the text. I figure that Genesis is a good place to start here as well.
