Genesis 6:1-6 (SBV)

December 20, 2008

1 When Enlightenment influenced conservative Christians began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of historicism saw that they were fair; and they took wives for themselves of all that they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My spirit shall not abide in maximalists forever, for they are flesh; their interpretations shall be one hundred percent bad.”

4 The Fundamentalim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of historicism went in to the daughters of faith, who bore children to them. These were the literalists that were of old, warriors of renown; with epistemic certainty they drove many out of the land of Church. 5 The Lord saw that the wickedness of the Funadamentalim was great in the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of their hearts was only stupidity continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that they had convinced people they spoke for Him on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.


UPDATE: Jim West has reviewed my translation and offered some well informed emendations of his own.

    You’re sure God hasn’t called you to Ireland? 🙂
