OST is closed for business but its spirit survives on my blog.
I am reluctant to answer the question the way you’ve asked it because it starts from a premise that I fundamentally disagree with.
I can’t answer the question without making the same initial premise that you do. And I refuse to make that starting presupposition. Why?
Because I am not a philosophical realist. I do not presume that beneath all these texts and interpretations there is a foundational, uninterpreted fact of history on which my faith stands.
My faith is constituted by a daily, personal commitment to follow in the way of Jesus.
