So, this is more on the religion theme, except in a totally different way. I opened up the Bible(yes, I HAVE a Bible, a nice, leather-backed(leather-covered?leather-bound?) red letter version, it was a gift from my great-aunt before I left for college, and I think I’m supposed to keep it till I get married or something, when presumably I’ll get another one 😛 ) to a random page, something people are supposed to do for divination, and looked somewhere in the middle. And found that a whole bunch of people were descended from a whole other bunch of people. So, I tried again and got this:
The Book of Isaiah, Chapter 55, Verses 10-11:
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth the bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing[sic] for which I sent it.
This is more or less verbatim, from the New King James Version. And the experiment is very simple: just tell me what it means. I don’t really have much of a clue (besides maybe God’s omnipotence or something), but it sounds quite beautiful, doesn’t it? I’m SURE there are some very good and very lengthy explanations for this, like for every other part of the Bible, and I really do want someone to explain it to me. Ideally, someone with a fairly decent idea of christianity, although not necessarily a believer or something
