Bible In Five Statements

I would like to give a shout-out to Kristen who tagged me. Here’s the task I was given:

Summarize the Bible in five statements (fifteen words).  The first statement – one word long, the second two, the third three, the fourth four and the last five words long. Or possibly you could do this in descending order. Tag five people.

I don’t tag people so ignore that last part.

My first attempt:

Contradictory
Obviously false
Horribly mistaken dogma
Why believe this nonsense?
Seriously, who believes this crap?

I felt something was a bit off however, so I decided to give it another shot. My second attempt:

Diverse
Exceedingly influential
Misunderstood for generations
Historically unreliable, theologically brilliant
Should the canon be closed?

    You didn’t tag me, but I gave it two tries.

    Overwhelming
    Why me?
    God is here
    I am not God
    Looking forward to the end

    Outrageous
    Mostly misunderstood
    Inclusive of all
    Theologically brilliant beyond comprehension
    I’ll ask questions for eternity

    I’ll share this with others. Thanks.

    Your responses fit you well too. 🙂

    At first flippant and disrespectful, and then intellectual and academic.
