 Thank you, Yitzhak, for the links. I am quite anxious to see how they compare to my graduate school experiences (three-times thus far) of the application of deconstructionism which is as I used it in the post you referenced. Unfortunately, they were always about attacking, undermining, denying or even criminalizing the validity of the Western cannon as well as all things religious especially all things scriptural.
 Thanks again for this.

 Gal. 27-29: For as many as have had a tevilah into Moshiach have clothed yourselves with Moshiach. There is not Yehudi nor Yevani (Greek), there is not eved (servant) nor ben chorin (freedman), there is not zachar (male) nor nekevah (female), for you are all echad in Moshiach Yehoshua/Yeshua. And, if you belong to Moshiach (YESHAYAH 53:10), then you are of the ZERAH of Avraham Avinu, you are yoreshim (heirs) according to the havtachah (promise).

  Dear David,

In your original use of the word "desconstructionists," it was used in
the following sentence: "I am not making an argument for the inerrancy
of the TN'K here but the unbridgeable difference between the interpretive
lenses of those who accept the inerrancy of the TN'K as originally
scripted and those deconstructionists who work from their own
preconceived notions."  As such, it places deconstructionists in
opposition to those who hold by biblical inerrancy.  This is not
deconstructionism.  While you have quoted a dictionary definition,
this definition is a very succinct summary of the entire method and in
fact does not do much to explain what it really is.  So, here are
examples of deconstruction of some biblical texts:


I suggest you read them, and then ask yourself how really are
the deconstructionists opposed to inerrancy?  In reality, it seems that
you have used deconstructionism as a label, emptying it of what it
really means.
