I think it was Drudge who posted a link about an article in the men’s magazine Gentlemen’s Quarterly regarding literary opinion, of which, no surprise here, the Bible made their short list on works not worthy of reading.
Guess what? I did not read their article. I do not care what their editors or writers say about scripture. From a magazine which suggests what color tie to wear or what shoes to put on? Really? Like they have half an ounce of credibility when it comes to the value of God’s word? Even atheists are not this stupid.
Pornography quarterly, I’m sorry, I meant to say Cosmopolitan quarterly, oops, got that wrong, meant to say Gentlemen’s quarterly, are true rags in the best sense of the word. Appeal to the base of the lowest form of intellect, hiding under expensive perfume, cologne, Rolex’s that can’t guarantee a second more to your life, but wait, did you notice how I snuck in ‘lowest form of intellect’ when speaking of the rich and the famous?
We assume ‘very smart’ when speaking of the elite or jet set, because they have figured out how to live life being shrewd or independent of anyone or anything. Send off one of these guys, tell him to fetch a left-handed hammer, and he will be lost for a month. As I said, not too smart.
But ‘smart’ is subject to interpretation of course, as many a millionaire couldn’t grow a tomato or know where the gas cap is in their limo. So no, it’s no surprise that scripture made the list of ‘forbidden books,’ or books that are so unworthy of time, judged so by fashion gurus and the truly elite, and agreed upon by so many of their disciples. Ha!
News flash folks. God’s word loses no more lustre than does the sun lose light or heat because of people who hate summer time. Put the bible on a scale with Gentlemen’s quarterly, and it’s safe to say that the magazine full of advertisements and Ken dolls could not compare to as much as one verse of scripture. It’s not that GQ is that bad, but that God’s word is that good.
Truth has no competitors. Whether it be Woman’s Day, Boys Life, Reader’s Digest, Prevention, Mother Earth News, Atheist’s Are Us, Christianity Today, Golf Digest, Harley USA, or the zillions of monthly’s, none, None, NONE can compete with God’s word. So it is no surprise that the board of a men’s mag would opine that God’s word is irrelevant. Yeah like they would be interested in hearing what God says of their hearts and conscience!
If so-called learned rabbis can half heartedly ‘find fault’ with scripture, if self-made ‘archaeologists’ can say there was no Red sea or that Joshua never lived; if pseudo scholars ‘teach’ that Christ did not reeeely rise from the dead, then is any one surprised that the GQ people find God’s word tasteless? No one around here anyway. But it does prove once more:
Let God be true, and every man a liar.
