We intend to do this by focusing chiefly on the following overview: 1) Spong’s World View 2) The Bishop and the Bible 3) Spong, Science, and Scripture 4) Spong’s View Of God 5) Spong and the Resurrection 6) The Birth and the Bishop 7) Spong and Morality 8) Alleged Antisemitism in the New Testament 9) Spong the Scholar 10) Conclusion Selected Bibliography of Spong’s Works Selected Bibliography of Works Defending Christian Orthodoxy About the Authors No word is objective; hence no word ever passes from the lips of one person into the hearing of another without being changed in meaning. Such absolute and certain statements sound strange from a bishop who condemns a church for prescribing certainty and absolutes.

He claims he is a Christian yet he champions causes that historic Christianity has often fought tooth and nail against.
Yet this is not the objective language supposedly typical of science, but rather that of a religious zealot responding to someone who has blasphemed his faith.The view of science as a neutral accumulator of facts has been debated in several books, such as Thomas Kuhn’s famous book, Kuhn maintains that scientific revolutions occur through a shift in the framework or paradigm in which facts are interpreted, and that the shift in framework depends as much upon human and non-scientific factors as on the data themselves.The Marxist evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould also admitted that any theory colours perception of fact.Belief in a literal Bible is primitive and produces such ‘mistakes’ as beliefs in Christ’s bodily resurrection and virginal conception, and the idea that homosexual acts are sinful. We know that Jesus neither rose from the grave nor was He born of a virgin, and that homosexual acts are just as valid as heterosexual acts.
But just how objective and neutral is Spong’s new god Science?
Scientific laws do not cause or forbid anything any more than the outline of a map causes the shape of the coastline.
