Genesis 2:5

August 31, 2009


Genesis 2:5 “…and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth… Wait a minute, hold everything here. What do you mean “…and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth… We just went through the whole Creation in chapter one. We already have shrubs in the field, we have […]

Gensis 1:29

August 28, 2009


Genesis 1:29 "…I give you…every seed-bearing plant…and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food." Sure am glad that things changed a bit down the road and God said OK to cheeseburgers.

Genesis 1:26

August 26, 2009


Genesis 1:26 “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” OK…I am less than a page into this thing and already a big question.  "Let us…our image…our likeness…” Cause up until know, it was "Let there be…" and there was. But all of a sudden, we shift gears and move from just a […]

I am just a few days into this adventure/exercise and had an idea for something that may (or may not) become something I do pretty often. drum roll please….

Genesis 1:2

August 23, 2009


Genesis 1:2 "Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters." I feel pressure to say something about this verse. Mostly because I said a few days ago that I am going to read through the Bible and write […]

Genesis 1:1

August 22, 2009


Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Every great book has a great opening line. From “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” to “Call me Ishmael” or even "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish." Great literature demands a great first line. Turns […]

In the beginning…really….

The Bible. Now there’s a book. Written by dozens of writers over hundreds of years. Originally penned in four different languages, the 66 different “books” of the Bible all combine to tell a story. Or so the theologians would have you believe. For me, it's not quite so clear. See I have read the Bible […]
