‘Bible Stories Without God’

See the source image

This is one of those Mene, Mene, Tekel moments that make you wonder if our whole civilization is headed for the landfill of history.

A publicist has invited me to review a book that will surely land its author in Hell–and probably him, too, if he doesn’t repent, big-time. It’s all about “re-imagining” the Bible. Whenever you hear that word “re-imagining,” turn around and go the other way.

“Re-imagining” means you take something that has meaning, fold-bend-spindle and mutilate it to give it an entirely different meaning that suits your purpose, and then tell the public that your new, improved version is what it was “really” supposed to mean all along.

In this case we have “Re-telling Bible stories without an angry God.” Swell idea. But see, kicking God out of the Bible makes it possible, babbles the publicist, to give the stories “a connection” to this lamentable 21st century. It also means the characters in the “stories” can do anything they want without having to account to an immutably righteous ultimate authority.

That’s how we wind up with–oh, let this one line suffice: “Young gay lovers seeking refuge in the sanctuary cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.”

The author, we are told is “a pastor.” Really? A pastor who vomits out this abominable filth? Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

I will not mention the title of this satanic piece of garbage, nor the author’s name, nor even the name of the publicist.  Jesus Christ Himself has warned them.

“And if any man shall take away from the words of this book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life…” (Revelation 22:19)

Go ahead, chuckles–take God out of the Scriptures. But don’t say He didn’t warn you.

  1. Ugh. Disgusting. And in a way, juvenile — like grade school kids thinking they’re being clever by sticking dirty words into classic poems or songs.

  2. What a deplorable situation. The enemy is pulling out all the stops to push humanity over the edge and into the pit. This “pastor” will have a very heavy penalty to pay for all the unwary souls take him seriously.

  3. “Re-imagining the discovery of America by Columbus … without Columbus.”

    “Re-imagining the Elizabethan Era … without Elizabeth.”

    “Re-imagining the Wild West … without cowboys OR indians.”

  4. Re-imagine this pastor being struck down with an unknown disease and in his misery and desperation calling out to God in repentance of his sin. I would also like to re-imagine him being healed, filled with the Holy Spirit, and preaching the Bible as the very Word of God.

    1. Reimagining is one of the new buzzwords. From what I can tell, it’s a license to say whatever you want and paste it onto some notable work from the past as a means to claim credibility.

    2. I remember when they were “re-imagining Christianity” at St. Olaf’s College. They wound up with a sham Christianity without Christ. They were very proud of it.
