Blackbird Press – Don’t Shoot the Questioner

Friends, here is a fragment from another superb article on Blackbird Press.

“I’ve been questioning the bible lately,” said Query.

Answer shot her a worried glance.

“Don’t freak out,” Query said. “I still read it. But I’ve just been wondering, why do we trust it so much? How do we know it’s true?”

“It’s the word of God,” replied Answer.

“Don’t give me your pithy answers,” Query said, and then added more quietly, “I mean, I know it’s the word of God, and I think I believe that.  I just… well, I guess I’m not sure what that means, or why.”

“Isn’t the title, ‘Word of God’ self-explanatory?”

“It’s not.” Query retorted…

It is a text really worth reading. You can find the whole article HERE.
