Sunday Verse 1 From

When I nominated Keith DeHavelle for The Food For Thought Award, I did so with some trepidation. I don’t doubt he finds himself nagged by Christians to convert from time-to-time. However, that was not my motivation. Would I like him to convert? Of course I would, but  is already familiar with the Bible. If he does not find God’s Word persuasive, what could I add?

So why did I proceed with the nomination? After reading his blog, I decided Keith had found much to admire in our nation’s Christian heritage, and he is a defender of many Christian values. In addition, I believed  could and would (if he could be persuaded to do so) provide an interesting, honest and objective discussion of the Bible. In an era when foolish people strive to belittle the Bible’s historical relevance, we need bloggers willing and capable of discussing the Bible’s role in history.

 is quite capable. Here he begins his first installment.

 Part of my task, in accepting this award, is to write about seven Biblical verses that I have found useful or inspirational. I am up for this — while I am not personally religious, I have been interested in religion for a very long time as part of my general interest in people and history. To this end, I’ve read the Bible (originally in the King James version, and after sampling a number of others I am most fond of Young’s Literal Translation from the 1880s), most of the Book of Mormon and Bhagavad-Gita and a large portion of the Qur’an and some (relatively few are in English) Sunnah and al-Hadith (Islam has three different holy texts, which play different but important roles in Islamic society). I’ve read bits and pieces of foundational works of other religions as well, from Scientology (founded on a bet by an SF author) to some Raellian materials (whew!).(continued here)

As Keith continues, he delves into the meaning a passage from 2 Corinthians and relates it to current events. Visit Sunday Verse 1. I think you will find the time well spent.

  1. Thank you for the kind words. It is a bit of an odd situation, isn’t it?

    At least I didn’t write my own thoughts in iambic pentameter — though I confess to some temptation in that direction. So, as peculiar as this might be, it could be verse.
