Excellent article. One critique:
“When faced with questions about Torah, our first response has to be loyalty to the Torah that we love.”
The problem with this statement is that on an individual level, if one’s loyalty to Torah is based on one’s belief in its veracity, then one’s first response to (substantive) questions regarding its veracity must logically be to confront the questions and determine the facts. For such a person, loyalty to Torah is a result of one’s search for truth, not a prerequisite for it.
