biblical literalism: take a picture, it’ll last longer

biblical literalism: take a picture, it’ll last longer December 1, 2013

A friend of mine took these photos of a sunrise over Good Harbor Beach, Gloucester, MA. In his words, “I turned it from a nice color picture into a black & white, high contrast print with little detail or nuance of meaning.  I did this as a parable of what is being done to Scripture by those who insist on a strict literalist interpretation.”

My friend’s comments illustrate two important points.

  1. I do have friends. So there.
  2. A picture is worth 1000 words–1000 of my words, anyway.
