"Most major religions have what is sometimes referred to as a “sacred text.” What Christians call “Holy Scripture” is considered one of these. It is evaluated as the best spiritual literature coming from Christianity and then equated with the writings of Buddha, the Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism, or even the excellent devotional materials by Martin Luther King, Jr., or Mother Teresa. The question needs to be asked, however: Are all “sacred texts” alike? Why have Christians insisted on the absolute nature of the Holy Bible? In light of contemporary thinking, we ought to consider once again the primary “textbook” of the Christian faith and its supreme authority for Christians."
