God Is A Green Giant: The Green Bible Is Good Enough To Eat

by | 23rd, October 2008

“DID you know the Bible contains 1,000 references to the planet but only 490 references to heaven and 530 references to love? Could this mean God is the supreme tree-hugger?”

Anorak contests the Chicago Tribune’s figures and wonders if Eve’s fig leaves have been double counted in both the love and plant categories.

But we shall not delve into ecumenical matters, but let the Tribune continue to speak of the Green Bible, a Scripture for the Prius age:

The new Bible, which hit shelves this month, prints God’s word on partly recycled paper in soy-based ink. It indexes all mentions of animals, land and water. It also highlights, in green ink, all verses of the New Revised Standard Version that speak to stewardship of the planet.

Is not greenery and warmism a new religion? Is the Koran to be so treated, the Talmud, the words of L Ron Hubbard, Noel Edmonds?

You can buy your own green Bible as you can a buy a Bible for whatever your believf, like if you’re a porn star – as Jesus said on the cross: “Got Wood?”

Ezekiel 34:18: “Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, but you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture? When you drink of clear water, must you foul the rest with your feet?”

No, we must not. We have “taps”, bottled water and slippers.

God is not longer just good: God is green, like the giant.

The Green Bible is the definitive movement Bible that shows that God is green and how we can care for and protect God’s creation.

Mind your step:

“It will also include a study guide, in which weekly readings instruct readers “to find an actual stone or other memento from nature so that by the time they finish the study guide they will have created a small memorial to mark their journey.”

And when you arrive leave only footprints and take only memories. No fly–tipping…
