The NT and Pluralism

Chapter 6 of Gagging is up for Tuesday, March 20. It is not one of the shorter chapters (I can hear the groan!), but it covers some exceedingly relevant ground. I'm praying that you read with an alert mind and inquiring spirit. Here's just one zinger from Don that comes in light of the biblical data and pluralistic spirit of the age:

“The pluralist is an idolater, worshipping the created world more than the Creator. He or she so relativizes God’s truth that God’s own Son becomes incidental on the religious landscape, and his sacrificial death and miraculous resurrection become insignificant and unbelievable respectively. Pluralists are inconsistent in that they want to be understood univocally while insisting that ancient authors, let alone God himself, cannot be” (D.A. Carson, The Gagging of God), 278.
