It’s interesting how myth can be taken in different ways

eg: There are at least seven competing theologies of the atonement.

I should totally blog about that

eg: Scripture can be used to condemn or justify war, pacifism, civil rights, racism, bodily autonomy, abortion, charity, racism, colonialism, communism, murder, feminism, capitalism, polygamy, poverty, penitentiaries, and everything else I can’t think of at the moment.

Might want to blog about that, too

eg: Concepts emerge from sacred books that lens our reality, and can either enable or repress us.

Definitely blogging about that soon

But today I’m just thinking about a bit of Bible, and my two favourite ways of taking it.

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger.

Ephesians 4:26

This means: don’t sin by letting anger control you, and resolve your fights before going to bed.


This means: be righteously angry, and don’t let your anger’s day end.
