A Gospel reading from the first chapter of John, evangelical edition:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were taught by the Word; and without the Word was not any thing taught that was taught.
In the Word was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
And the Word was made text, and the text was bound among us, and we beheld its glory, the glory as of the only transcribed of the Father, full of inerrancy and truth.
And of its fulness have all we received, and inerrancy for inerrancy.
For the law was given by Moses, but inerrancy and truth came by the Word.
No man hath seen God at any time, the only transcribed text, which is from the bosom of the Father, it hath declared him.
(This is me, venting — letting off a bit of steam so I’ll be able to write a more substantive response to the horrifying bibliolatry being preached in reaction to Steve Chalke’s recent argument for honoring all marriages equally. “Christianity is not about a book,” Chalke said, and the emphatic reply from his evangelical brethren has been to insist that, Yes it is, yes it is, yes it is!)
