Let’s make up some Biblical-sounding quotes. This exercise may be more challenging than you think. Points will be awarded for submissions in the following categories:
- Realism. Does it capture the ‘style’ found in a particular book?
- The Judgment Factor. Everyone knows the best passages are those that can somehow be interpreted to condemn an entire segment of humanity for possessing some attribute or engaging in some behavior. Be creative.
- Silliness. As pointed out on another recent thread, the Bible’s got ridiculous knee-slappers tucked among its pages. The Bible’s got some seriously untapped comic potential that just needs to be developed a bit. Work it.
So sharpen your quills, brush up on your King James style (and if NIV or English Standard is more your style that’s fine too) and give us some faux proverbs or prophecy, citing chapter & verse.
