God doesn’t claim to have a blog, but what if He had one? You’d expect the Blog of God to be like His Word.
It would surely go viral since more than 168,000 Bibles are sold or given away each day in the United States. God’s book has been translated into 2,018 languages. So visitors and views would increase dramatically and bring on the followers! I’m so envious!
But what quality of followers? In a recent survey, 78.4% claimed to be Christian. But only 27% judged themselves to be “Bible minded” which was defined as reading the Bible at least once per week and believing strongly in its accuracy. Poo! Blogs tend to be for immediate consumption so they could be missing a lot of posts.
How would the Blog of God be written? Surely like the Word of God: “Here a little, there a little, line upon line.” Like a jigsaw puzzle! Oh, so people will have a clear picture of the Bible’s message and have an easy time putting it together? Read the rest of Isa. 28:13 for God’s reason if you want to be shocked.
Who will write the Blog of God? The Word of God had 40 different writers from all walks of life. The Blog of God might feature a man like Paul who wrote 14 books of the New Testament’s 27. Though Paul probably thought he was writing plainly, Peter noted that Paul “writes some things hard to understand, which those who are untaught and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures” (2 Pet. 3:16). And as they would undoubtedly do also with the Blog of God.
OK, there is not now and never will be the Blog of God because God warns against adding to His Word. Sorry, no other holy books. And no holy blogs. Put away the cannons. Especially aimed my way! God says His Old and New Testaments are enough for us to live by every word of life and to rightly divide.
But can you fault a thankful moose for wanting to be a tool in God’s hand and prayerfully create what He might impute to be a helpful though fallible blog of God. Hey, He once spoke through a donkey!
FUN FACT: What am I? Phylum: Chordata, Class: Mammalia, Order: Artiodactyla, Family: Cervidae, Genus: Alces. That sounds like the Apostle Paul writing about me.
I’m a moose.
