While working on my doctorate it became clear that I have a strong tendency to write in the narrative. Unacceptable in a scholarly arena! We live in the narrative and share with each other in the narrative. So why would one believe only scholarly written (format/style seems the better description) text bears more weight than the narrative? We are all going to believe what we are comfortable with —justified by the means we personally (and many times secretly) “believe” in. This is almost always rooted in one’s secular indoctrination. Have you read where I was TOLD that the Holy Bible is NOT CONSIDERED A SCHOLARLY SOURCE? Dr. Schroeder posits in his book The Science of God, "The Bible is primarily narrative, teaching through the lives of biblical personages" (Schroeder, G. p. 76). Have you heard of cafeteria religion ? That is where people pick and choose what religious tenets they wish to believe and reject those teachings that do not appeal to their interests…I digress.
