The Book & You: Reading Between Scriptural Lines

The Bible speaks of the birth of a universe in seven days, the conception of sin due to the eating of a fruit, an ancient high-rise brought down by internal differences, a dragon lying in wait for the coming of a blessed child, a woman transformed into a pillar of salt just because she turned to look at a burning city…

All this is true and much of it has already come to pass, but probably not in the way we have believed so far. What if science and religion are just two ways of looking at the same thing? What if everybody has been taking things a little too literally?

    Matthew 15

     

     

    “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

    Matthew 7:13-14
