To @BradKramer and Other BioLogos leaders:
As I read posts and responses to posts, on more than one occasion I have been COMPLETELY IMPRESSED with the perfect choice of words in support of a key point or the general BioLogos mission.
Sometimes the quotation is just incredibly concise. Sometimes the quotation is incredibly logical. And many times the quote is unusually compelling and persuasive! It would be shame to have these brilliant gems lost under five tons of the more ordinary postings and texts.
This morning, I read this by @Christy
“I don’t think Jesus taught false things. But I think his words can be decontextualized so that they make false propositions. Jesus said the mustard seed was the smallest seed there is. If we decide to print that in a botany textbook, that would be bad, and Jesus would be wrong. Was he giving a botany lesson when he said that? No, so it’s stupid to insist he was lying or teaching falsehood when he said it. I think something similar applies to the discussion of the creation of the world.”
I posted in response: “This paragraph should go in the BioLogos Hall of Fame !”
Now that I’ve had more time to reflect on this idea, perhaps the term “Hall of Fame” is not the best choice of words. But it would be wonderful if participants had the ability to nominate various quotations for consideration to be suitably ARCHIVED for later use by other members or participants: in an Appendix? in an Archive? In a “Great Quotes” page?
As the archive/appendix “evolves” (< see that?!) - - I suppose categories could emerge to provide additional convenience for going through these words of gold.
Please consider this idea as an additional way for the financial supporters of BioLogos to get “their money’s worth” in this noble effort.
