Thoughts while pedaling now add punctuation

ADVERTISEMENT



Did you know that the original Greek and Hebrew texts of the Bible didn't use punctuation? Translators and editors of all modern versions have added that. Consider this example from a modern situation to see why there are so many people who have different opinions while all saying, "I just believe what the Bible SAYS!"


An English professor wrote the words: "A woman without her man is nothing" on the chalkboard and asked her students to punctuate it correctly.

All the males in the class wrote: "A woman, without her man, is nothing."


All the females in the class wrote: "A woman: without her, man is nothing!"

Believing what the Bible *says* isn't enough. That's why we all grapple at times with what it *means.* It's not enough to argue, "But the Bible SAYS!" The real issue is, "what does it mean by what it says?" And therein lies the discussion!

Thanks to Pastor Steve McVey for the ponder!
