What the Bible Doesn’t Say

August 18, 2008

One of the things I often tell people is to read the Bible like you’re reading it for the very first time.  Often, we subconsciously read stuff into stories from our subconscious because that’s the way we think its supposed to go  or that’s what it’s supposed to say.  For example, Genesis says that “the serpent is more wiley than any of the wild animals”.  People get hung up on the idea of a literal serpent losing his legs and having to crawl on his belly.  But notice that the Bible doesn’t say that the serpent was more wiley than any of the OTHER wild animals.  So, he’s not counted as a “wild animal”.
