It’s interesting how myth can be taken in different ways
by MW Cook
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.
