Wow, what stunning disconnect on display here. Jennifer stumbles over the answer to her outrage, the very key verse itself! Foolish men will indeed call the word of God foolish -- so then what was the point of this rant Jennifer? Why did you feel compelled to call out GQ magazine for behaving exactly how the Bible said they would behave? Is there a point to stirring up the church against the people stumbling in the darkness? The people God said we were to bring the Gospel to? Is this your version of a shining city on a hill? You sound like the sons of thunder when they asked Jesus if they should call down fire from heaven to consume the Samaritan village that would not accept Jesus. Christ rebuked them and said they knew not what spirit they were of. If you were of the Holy Spirit then He would have convicted you for railing against people who are lost and simply know not what they are doing. He would have stopped your self-righteousness and made you act with some compassion. Princess Calamari continues:

"Case in point, GQ speaks of the Bible this way: "It is repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned," the review reads. Kettle, do you hear the pot calling you? The Bible is none of those things. It is the Word of God which is purified seven times (see Psalm 12:6)." -- Jennifer Leclaire

Wait a minute, you just admitted that these things are utter foolishness to them so your next step is to mock them for it? GQ is not your enemy Jennifer. They are supposed to be your mission field. As the Roman soldiers were driving the stakes into Jesus He asked God to forgive them yet when GQ suggests that the Bible is sententious your response is to deride them? To the lost the Bible must seem incredibly repetitive. Remember that all Scripture ties together. All scripture is breathed out by one author -- God. It all has one purpose, one message and is about one person -- God. What we might look at as consistent, the world certainly views as repetitive. The contradictory charge is because we no longer defend the Bible as inerrant but would rather placate the Andy Stanley's of the world. Why watch an hour long apologetics debate when you can watch Todd White pull the old growing leg trick? Sententious, which by the way is an awesome word, means to be moralizing and pompous. GQ seems to be pretty close there too no? God is a moral God and his demands for holiness can certainly come off as being quite moralizing. Pompous is simply related to the fact that the Bible deals with these matters unapologetically from a position of unquestioned and absolute truth. No shades of grey allowed. You have to love the next criticism leveled by GQ -- foolish! Yes, the book that says they will think the book is foolish is then called foolish by those people. Thank you for proving God right! The larger point however is that this merely confirms what God has said all along. The things of God are foolishness to those that are perishing. As for ill intended, I can understand why someone unsaved and consigned to an eternity in hell might view that position as ill intended. Not saying GQ is right but I can understand why they might hold that view. Jennifer instead cites Psalm 12 to refute the carnal truths GQ has presented. I hate to break this to you Jennifer but Psalm12 is just as foolish to them as any other verse you might want to cite. The Squid Spirit swims on:

"What should we meditate on, then, if not the Word of God? Instead, these glitz and glam editors believe you should read "The Notebook" by Agota Kristof. "If the thing you heard was good about the Bible was the nasty bits, then I propose Agota Kristof's The Notebook, a marvelous tale of two brothers who have to get along when things get rough. The subtlety and cruelty of this story is like that famous sword stroke (from below the boat) that plunged upward through the bowels, the lungs, and the throat and into the brain of the rower." Um, what? New-wave European fiction can never outlast, outsell or outdo the Bible. No one who has read it with an open heart could suggest so. I pray the Lord delivers GQ from the deep dark blindness. I break the Lord God Almighty breaks in with light and love and a radical encounter like unto Paul's experience with Jesus on the road to Damascus." -- Jennifer Leclaire
