Thank you for your explanation. All I'm really looking for from anybody who chooses to chime in is a well thought out reason for holding the position. If someone has a faith-based position, of which secondary inspiration absolutely is, there is precious little I can do to change their mind because it involves a change in worldview to some degree and even the smallest change there is almost impossible unless someone is open-minded about it; so I'm not going to try to argue or persuade you one way or the other. I think your position is absolutely incorrect on several points and we clearly have different ideas about the veracity of historical data and scholarship and what it means to study it, but that's your prerogative. I merely want to understand your position and anyone else's who holds a similar one.
Now that is a great reply, thanks brother
