If there’s a video out there of some kind of Spong–Mohler debate, I’m not going to watch it. I can’t think of two individuals I would want to see and hear less of. If I were ever exposed to both of them at the same time, my head would explode from the sheer force of smug, self-assured hubris. One of them is a fundamentalist blowhard who insists that his interpretation of the Bible is the only one that is valid. The other turned a top-notch theological seminary into an indoctrination center.*
Neither of them speak for me. More to the point: neither of them speak for Christ.
