It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse is just plain silly and completely misses the point.
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” – Isaiah 40:8
This verse intends to convey the message that things come into being and things die, but God exists forever. Really? Using grass and flowers is a horrible way of describing it. Yeah, grass withers, but it can survive extreme drought. It will re-grow. Yes, flowers lose their petals, but many will re-grow in the spring. Those that don’t produce seeds to continue life. It’s easy to argue that grass and flowers are FAR MORE enduring than the word of God. God’s word of killing babies, starting wars, and throwing out those who are different? Forget it. I’ll take withering grass and flowers as they are far stronger than the god of the Bible.
