A pause from the Deep Space story (I’m not sure where it’s going anyway.)
The Bible Needs to be Updated
The Bible is a good book. Lots of good stuff in it. How we should live and all. But it needs to be brought up to date. There’s stuff we’ve found out in the last couple hundred years that should be included in the Bible.
Like evolution. Where does that fit in the creation story?
And relativity. Why does the Bible not say anything about that?
And quantum physics? Seems to me that’s too important to be left out.
And of course there’s the Big Bang. You got to fit that in somewhere.
One thing I’d like to have cleared up is this stuff about the strange glyphs in South America that can only be seen from 30,000 feet. Who made them? Were they visitors from outer space? We need an explanation. What about those creatures in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? What’s that? Only a movie? Oh yeah. I guess you’re right.
So anyway the Bible needs to be updated to include all that stuff. We need to see how it all fits into the Big Picture. We need explanations.
Still there are some things the Bible tells us that we can find nowhere else.
Like how there is a God and He made us, made us not just muscle and blood and bone but He made us spirit. Spirit that could commune with Him, spirit to Spirit.
Like how we disobeyed, went our own way and lost that ability to commune with Him.
How we fought to find our way back to Him and found that we could not get there.
How when it became clear that we could not get back to Him, He came to us and made a way for us to find restored communion with Him, spirit to Spirit.
Out of that came a new word, grace. Science has nothing to say about grace.
So I don’t know, maybe there are things we think we need to know that are not as important as we think. But there are things we need to Know that can only be found in the Bible.
You know what I think? I think the Bible is fine the way it is.
