Topic
Understanding the Bible

Bible
James 1:17

Discussion Starter
Caltech professor Mike Brown killed Pluto. As Brown says, it had it coming. He justifies killing Pluto with proof that it wasn’t ever really a planet in the first place but something we misunderstood as a planet.

Like planets, words have a funny way of moving in their meaning over time. English is one of the most difficult languages to learn because the meaning of our words changes so frequently.

James 1:17 is translated, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” The Bible that we read in English is a translation from Greek or Hebrew. Scholars take the original words and do the best that they can to put into our language what God’s Word is saying to us.

This is why we don’t just need to read the Bible. Instead, we need to understand what God is saying to us. Yes, the very words themselves are sacred and important. But more imporant than the words themselves is allowing those words to shape our life!

3 Questions

  1. If you got to name a planet, what name would you would give it?
  2. Would you rather discover something brand new or tell the world that something they believe is real isn’t really real?
  3. What’s one thing from the Bible you’ve memorized the you think about a lot?

Chew on this
If Pluto isn’t really a planet does that mean the dog from Disney needs a new name?
