When one thinks of Creationism and the Christian apologists this verse from Matthew describes their operation of obfuscation. Such skepticism of everything scientific and yet they swallow the camel of dogmatic sacred scripture! If one thinks the scientific theory of evolution is problematic how can they then swallow the inconsistent and yet infallible book of the Bible? This is intellectual dishonesty and inconsistency.
This argument from Christian apologists who say that there needs to be a higher degree of biblical scholarship before commenting and yet most of the Christian beliefs they defend are believed by people who have no such scholarship. IF more Christians studied the Bible at a higher level I think there would be more doubt and less fundamentalism. Is this what christian apologists want? More likely they use it to bully people into silence and obfuscation.
