God’s Scarlet Thread

I love old songs and stories

Even with old hymns, you’ll find there are a hundred different versions

In days past, the idea of story was much more about the conveyance

of individual ownership rather than empirical data.

So, depending on the region and the dialect, you could experience the story in a

whole new way.

That’s why I think it’s so fascinating looking at the Scriptures with a strictly Western

mindset.

The word “inerrant” gets throw around a lot, and I agree that you CAN TOTALLY

rely upon the Bible as your rock and guiding light,

but as I look at the Gospels and even things like Genesis 1 & 2,

I see something beyond equations, a “by the book” approach

I see God working uniquely in the lives of each and every one of these storytellers

to bring about a handcrafted, wonderful experience.

People may never see life the same way you do or we do,

but half the beauty of life is seeing where these stories meet and where they

diverge,

and seeing that through all of it is the scarlet thread of God.
