These particular ladies were the no-nonsense harbingers of Wendy's (fast food chain) claims about the quality of their hamburgers as compared with their competitor's offerings. With that one question, they put places like McDonald's, Burger King, Jack-in-the-Box, & others on notice: Beef matters!
The point was made ~ plain, simple, clever, powerful, provoking.
I feel much the same way when I listen to various comments or claims about the Bible and its veracity. Many a self-styled expert (sadly, some from church leadership among them) would have me believe it's a flawed tome; that it doesn't really mean or say what it means or says. Worse, they have asked that I set aside the plain sense of God's word to embrace some aberrant form of it. Some are long on grace but short on truth. Still others don't give a rip about either.
In essence, they serve up a burger embellished with lettuce, onions, mayo, relish but sparingly little or absolutely no beef.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any
of the wild animals the Lord God had made.
He said to the woman, "Did God really say,
'You may not eat from any tree in the garden'?".
... "You will not certainly die.",
said the serpent to the woman.
Genesis 3:1, 4
Every word of God is flawless; He
is a shield to those who take
refuge in Him.
~ Proverbs 30:5
For the word of God is alive and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow; it judges the
thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
~ Hebrews 4:12
Man shall not live on bread alone, but
on every word that comes from the
mouth of God.
~ Matthew 4:4
"Truth is the agreement of our ideas
with the ideas of God."
~ Jonathan Edwards
