8-9 Bibliolatry


Scripture is not an idol
To worship and to pray.
God did not want the Bible
Glued on altar display.

Breath of God or quill of men?
They wrote down what they heard.
From beginning to Amen,
What fountain poured their words?

So fallible men once wrote
What infallible God
Had intended when He spoke?
Is this reasoning flawed?

Either “all is true or none,”
A fallacy no doubt.
Flotsam by water’s bastion
Does not veer the stream’s route.

Spirit infallibly guides
From the writer’s own speech,
Truths that unites and divides.
It’s how to live they teach.

O Word of God incarnate:
The Bible illumes bright.
We feel our spirits pulsate,
So in the world ignite.
