“Context Is King”

There is a saying among those who study and teach literature. “Context is king.” They say this because it is very easy to misinterpret what an author is saying if we do not understand the context in which they are writing. Context includes writing styles, culture, historical time period and (in the case of translated works) understanding the original languages and idioms…for starts.

We have a Creator who loves us and who has revealed Himself to us in many ways. Those who think the God of the bible is some kind of genocidal maniac is not reading in context. I recognize that many will say the context is clear and the words are plain. On the surface, I would agree. If one reads without an understanding of idioms, language, writing styles and historical, cultural context it could easily appear that way. This is why real seekers of truth need to be studiers…not merely perusers or readers who are content with easy, superficial understandings.

Evidence of a Creator is all around us. Irreducible complexity is just one aspect…a very big one. Even non-believing scientists, for the most part, recognize the impossibility of evolution and the ones with integrity will admit they refuse to teach anything other than evolution because they do not want to believe in there being someone to whom they must answers. Their quotes can be found…if one is willing to search them out.

It is only logical that, if we have a Creator, that being wants to be known. It is also logical, that a Creator holds the key to who we are and why we are here. Shouldn’t we want to know about such things?

Seek our Creator while you have time! Make the most of your life!
