Today’s crazy Bible verse comes from the book of Job and focuses on science.
“He speaks to the sun and it does not shine; he seals off the light of the stars.” – Job 9:7
The sun doesn’t shine? Um…as the creator of all, you would think God knows that the sun does shine. It produces energy in the core through a fusion process. That light then leaves the surface of the sun and travels through space. In fact, we see the planets and the moon because of sunlight reflected off their surfaces. Other stars “shine” too, giving off light in a fusion process in the core.
The argument could be made that the authors of the Bible didn’t have the scientific understanding to understand stars. That’s true. Which then means the Bible is NOT the literal word of God. And if it’s isn’t the literal word of God, what parts are we to believe? If there was God who wrote His word in a book, one would think He’d get the science correct since He would have created the science in the first place.
