This is an interesting video by N. T. Wright on the early chapters of Genesis. The little blurb explaining the video says, “Bishop of Durham and leading New Testament scholar N.T. Wright offers his thoughts on how we should read the first two chapters of Genesis, and why myth does not mean the same thing as ‘not true’.” I’m not sure what you think about Macs or widgets, but my dictionary widget on my Mac gives me this definition for myth, “a widely held but false belief or idea.” In the 5 definitions offered at dictionary.com the words legendary, stories, invented, imaginary, fictitious, unproved, and false all appear. Hard to see how ‘myth’ and ‘not true’ are not related, if not synonymous.
Also, the BBC has an article that says depression is linked to internet addiction. Apparently cyber friends can’t take the place to real friends. A message for our times, and for our church.
