Church Signs #914 July, 2008
Seen on a church near my home (batteries in the camera were dead (and with the price of gas, we are not going to drive over there just for a photo)):
The Big Book Says It And That’s That
Which big book? Richard Scary’s Biggest Word Book Ever? Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary? Jane’s All The World’s Aircraft? The Kama Sutra? The Great Book of World War II Airplanes? Seriously. Which book?
I assume (since it’s a church (a Bible church (not one of those Necronomicon churches))) that they mean the Bible. I always have to wonder — which version? which translation? with the Paul insertions or without? I get the impression, from talking to theists, from reading the posts and comments of theists on line, and from reading the newspaper, that most Christians have absolutely no idea of the history of the Bible. Yet they claim it is the one, the only, truth which tells the word of God and shows how to live one’s life and is the only source of morality.
But, I guess that’s one of the advantages of belief. Proofs do not matter. History does not matter. Contradictions do not matter. Additions and deletions do not matter. With faith, you don’t even have to think — The Big Book Says It and That’s That.
