The Bible is like the Dictionary

Have you ever written a word by hand, like on a piece of paper, and then stared at it too long? You know the feeling, like, YOU just wrote that word, but now you’re looking at it wondering if you have ever seen that combination of letters in that order in your life, and no matter how much you reassure yourself that you spelled it right, you can’t shake the feeling that it HAS TO BE wrong. 

This is called semantic satiation or sometimes Wordnesia.

So when your brain is telling you a simple word is wrong- like “spider”

See what I mean? Does it REALLY have an ‘i’ in it? Didn’t it used to be ‘spydur’?

You can only argue with your brain for so long, and then you need to consult an outside authority. This is why there is a dictionary.

Back in ancient times, like when the Bible was written, there was no dictionary, and no standardized spelling. You just sounded it out and wrote things how you said them. This is why you can find words spelled different ways in the Bible, including people’s names. And then Roach Clowns try to throw that in your face as ERRORS in the Bible. Like, “OH! The Bible spells Zerubbabel more than one way in the original Greek! I guess Jesus DIDN’T rise from the dead!”

Except, you know… logic and all.

But now we have an authoritative book where in we can go to find out how a word is SUPPOSED to be spelled. Webster’s Dictionary! It also tells us how words are supposed to be used so we can ALWAYS use them correctly, which, you must admit, is parsimoniously ligneous, even if intermittently wistfully orbiculate.

If there is no dictionary it is pointless to argue about whether a word is spelled correctly. If you have a dictionary it is possible to determine if a word is or is not spelled correctly because there is an authoritative standard by which to judge.

When atheists argue about the rightness or wrongness of something, it is like two people arguing about the correct spelling of a word in a world with no dictionary. All they are really saying is, “I am the standard by which I judge, and you should also judge by what I think.” 

Or, “Man is the measure of all things, and I am the man.”

Or, “I am putting myself in the place of God.”

But even if you have the dictionary there is no way to argue whether or not the spelling in the dictionary is correct unless there is some standard above and outside of it by which to judge it- a SUPER Dictionary.

This is the relationship the Bible has to morality. God has given us a book by which to determine right and wrong and we have no means by which to judge the book that gives us the standard. That is

there is no standard above the standard.

Atheists try to condemn the Bible by saying it condones slavery. This, of course, is a lie based on a steaming pile of ignorance, but let’s go with it for a second. Let’s pretend God did say it is perfectly acceptable for one person to own another person.

Based on WHAT standard are you going to condemn it? Because you don’t LIKE it? This is like a person insisting the dictionary is WRONG because they don’t like the way “parsnips” is spelled.

“It SHOULD be “Par-Snips”! Webster was an IDIOT! I don’t need some flawed, ancient book to tell ME how to spell. I can figure these things out for myself!”

Ah, Atheism. Where ignorance is evidence and arrogance trumps everything. Sorry my atheist friends. The Bible gives us the absolute standard of right and wrong. If you don’t spell your life according to the Bible, it’s just wrong. And for those of you who are still going to insist that you can trust your own senses to determine right from wrong, then just tell me this: IS this how you spell spider?
