The Bible In One Sentence

Here’s an interesting exercise. What strikes me is how well commas and conjunctions work to make one sentence (and difficult communication).

It is also interesting to me how few these have much room for the judgment of God, which seems undeniably a part of the Bible’s message.

Here’s my answer: God wins.

It’s actually one sentence. It includes everything.

If I were compelled to contemporize it, or apply it, I would put it this way: God wins, so you better be on his side through Jesus.

Larry. Never thought of doing this. I decided to do a chapter by chapter summary in 10 words or less. I'm posting it to my blog. Fun stuff.
