Thinking

It is absolutely right to love and learn from the books of the Bible.  But it is wrong to fear their every word, for everything biblical is not Christ-like.  Besides, we Christians believe in the Word made flesh, not in the Word made words.  And for God’s sake let’s be done with the hypocrisy of claiming, ‘I am a biblical literalist’ when everyone is a selective literalist, especially those who swear by the anti-homosexual laws in the book of Leviticus and then feast on barbecued ribs and delight in Monday night football, for it is toevah, an abomination, not only to eat pork but merely to touch the skin of a dead pig.
