God Wrote a Book (not in fish language)

April 4, 2012

God wrote a book.

This idea raises a lot of issues like; If God did write a book then it would probably be a good idea to find out what book He wrote and what is in it and if there is anything in it that I am supposed to know or do. And; What makes up God’s book? What is God’s book about? How can I understand God’s book? Is God’s book even understandable? Does God’s book contain truth or fact or suggestions or commands or what?

God did write a book and the answers to all these questions begin with this; God wrote a book and He did not write it in cat language. Nor did he write it in fish language. And whatever “language” God “thinks” in and communicates to Himself with – He did not write His book in that language either.

God wrote His book in human language. He did this so that humans could understand it. And, God used human language the same way humans use human language. If God wrote His book using human language the same way He, or a fish, use human language then humans could not understand it.

This means humans can understand God’s book. This also means there are no “secret” or “deeper” or “more spiritual” meanings in God’s book beyond the plain statements and normal understanding of the words in God’s book. But, this does not mean that God’s book is always easy to understand.

What this does mean is that the more you know about human language, and how humans use language and the language that God’s book was written in – then the better you can understand God’s book.  So, as God says in His book, study and rightly divide His book so you can know Him and know what He wants.
