The Green Bible / Your God Is Too Small
The Green Bible – Are you weary of being bombarded from every direction with politics that are greener than the Incredible Hulk and Kermit the Frog? Hang in there. There’s more to come. Did you know there is a green letter edition of the Bible? You probably have a red letter edition of the Bible in your home. The first one was published in 1900 because of Louis Klopsch’s idea. The red words are helpful in quickly identifying what Jesus actually said. But it’s not the words of Jesus that are green in this new edition of the Bible. So what’s the point of it? Better yet, what is the emphasis? Serious students of the Bible should be informed. This Born to Win CD tackles a number of distinctive features you’ll find enlightening in this world where “green” is becoming the byword of the day.
Your God is Too Small – We’re at a terrible disadvantage when it comes to understanding God, but that doesn’t keep us from trying. We have a bad habit of wanting to go where no man has gone before. Do you recall when Job got presumptuous and God asked, “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand who marked off its dimensions. . .?” God was sarcastically saying, I must have missed you because I don’t recall seeing you at the time. Think about it. Do you have a clue what God was doing during the time before there was planet Earth? Have you seen churches divided because people chased biblical proof-texts, developing tortured explanations of things that are not revealed? By any definition of the term, we are ignorant. Any explanation of God offered by man can only diminish Him, make Him smaller. You need to realize that you can understand and know God, but only on His terms.
