I came across this the other day in something I was reading. I forget what I was reading now, but I scribbled it down in my fake Moleskine because it made sense to me.

People who insist that the sacredness of Scripture depends on belief in creation in a literal six days seem never to insist on a literal reading of ‘to him who asks give,’ or ’sell what you have and give to the money to the poor.’

That really punched me between the eyes. I need to re-evaluate.

*This is not a post about how to interpret Genesis nor is it an announcement that I no longer believe in a literal interpretation of Genesis so please, for the love of Harry Potter, don’t make it out to be so. Please don’t miss the forest through all the toothpicks.
