Bible verse of the day #37


People really shouldn’t be claiming that the Bible is scientific, a good example of this is 2 Kings 6:5-6

They went to the Jordan and began to cut down trees. As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axehead fell into the water. “Oh no, my lord!” he cried out. “It was borrowed!” The man of God asked, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float.

Iron does not float. Ever. And if you say that the ‘man of God’ used magic, then why does it not work these days? You never see priests or preachers doing anything that can’t be explained by science one way or another. God was always helping people do big things in the Bible, but nowadays he just ignores us. But still he gets praised for things that can be explained naturally, like probability or medical miracles.
