God's punctuation

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

I'm beginning to think people should stop mixing up Gracie Allen lines... or at least keep God out of the punctuation business. From a BBC report on a mother of a murder victim who opposes the death penalty:
"It was against everything I was brought up to believe. Taking another person's life is wrong. Don't put a question mark where God puts a period," she told the crowd to spontaneous cheering.
Are you telling me that Old Testament commandments don't end in a comma????

All joking aside, it's an interesting theology question in light of our denomination's adopted slogan, "Never put a period where God puts a comma". If you don't hold the Bible as authoritative, I imagine anything could end in a comma and we can pretty much make up our own rules as we go along. On the other side of the equation, if the Bible is authoritative (and each sentence ends in a period), why don't we still honor Levitical Law?
