The Dwarfed Bible ~ B#
Man cannot chain God's Word.
God seeks counsel from no man, and is never subject to man's judgement or arguments about Him.
The Lord of the heavens, the creator of the cosmos has revealed Himself through:
- His creative Word - Creation,
- His incarnate Word - Jesus, and
- His written Word - The Bible.
God's Holy Spirit of Truth applies His Words to the humble souls of men. Men are free to accept this or not. Those of men who simply accept God's Words without contradiction or dilution carry the faith of a child. This faith the Lord highly honors.
The minds of men, the highest intelligences of history all hemmed in and collated, are not even a new rain drop that Heaven needs to seek fresh water from.
Man's mind at his best can only recreate God in man's own fallen image. This man achieves when he chooses to explain God and His revelation away.
A dwarf can never shadow a giant, no matter how high he jumps or how many attempts he makes.
Man has gone in search of many schemes, making himself wise in his own eyes, but there are not many sources of wisdom.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. (Proverbs 3:7)

#The context for this SoulSnack is a debate about the contemporary irrelevance of Scriptures in a Christian church that now opens arms to immorality in the form of practising homosexuality. Not only has the Bible become further regulated to antiquity, but its absolute truths too are denied for God (who does not change) is now charged with redefining sin.
