Criticism of the Word of God has followed this reasoning: We cannot be sure God has spoken, then we are not responsible to what was said. Even if God has spoken, his speech is unclear and still we are not responsible. Even if it is clear, language itself cannot communicate truly; so again we are not responsible for what is said. If any of these fail, we humans are fallible and so our interpretations never truly grasp what is said; thus we are absolved of all remaining responsibility.
And all this started in the garden: “Ye, hath God said?”
