For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.(Hebrews 4:12) NKJV
We’re cleaning up blog posts again and pulling personal development pieces out of the main texts for each day. We’ll keep it, but it doesn’t need to be in the teaching material.
In October 2015 we first walked into Open Door Baptist Church. That was when we accepted our call to do something with the years we had put into the study of science and the Bible.
It was also when we decided to reach out to the world on social media. Very quickly we were drawn into the evolution vs. creation fray and it helped us to understand the real issue. Evolution is a distraction, it’s irrelevant. We’ve redrawn the battle line through theoretical physics and we can happily announce that general relativity is dead.
Our first blog, Biblio’s Blood, was intended to be an epic space-opera of Tolkein proportions which would be a way to explore the Biblical history of the Earth with a rag-tag band of time travelers. The connection with Biblical exposition was a theme where we explored the possibility that artificial intelligence could be born again. The push back on social media was surprising, given that it was SciFi, but it forced us to do the work necessary to discern the difference between the soul and spirit. The nature of the soul connected us to gravity, a pearl of great price, which we had found in scripture at least by 2002.
Receiving a call doesn’t iron out the kinks or make things easy it gives you direction and focus, a reason why the hard work will be worthwhile. Once upon a time we were still in the weeds and had to find our way out. We were with a Pastor friend to whom we explained our circumstances, in the back of an old bus on a dusty road from Kombolcha to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We shared all that was in our heart with him.
We told him that we were like Sampson (including the part about being easily distracted by beautiful women) and, with a metaphorical Donkey’s Jawbone, had to destroy the theoretical foundation of popular science (SciPop). We actually said that in 2013. We understood the scope of the task before us, and the discipline it would take to mind-meld the Bible with science. It was intimidating to say the least. For a while we did the Jonah thing. It’s called Biblio’s Blood.
