Five statement Bible summary

Sorry for not much blogging recently. As a newly married man I have new responsibilities, and a new way of life to adjust to. Also I have been doing some temporary paid work, for the first time for some time, and on top of that I have been having serious computer problems. Now the work has come to an end, at least for this week, and the computer is just about working again. So I have had some time to catch up on blog reading, and have just found enough for a short post …

Doug Chaplin, a.k.a. Clayboy, has tagged me with The new five statement bible summary meme. He also tagged David Ker, whose response is the only other one I have seen. These are the rules for the meme, which seems to have originated with Doug:

Summarise the Bible in five statements, the first one word long, the second two, the third three, the fourth four and the last five words long. Or possibly you could do this in descending order. Tag five people.

I’ll try this in descending order.

  1. God created everything very good.
  2. Human beings messed up.
  3. Chosen people failed.
  4. Jesus succeeded.
  5. Wow!

Of course here I gloss over the entire church age, by no means a “wow” time, to the best one word summary I can think of for the ultimate Christian hope.

Like David Ker I will decline to tag five others. Part of my excuse for that is that I can’t find links easily on my newly restored but still not quite right computer. But the main reason is that I don’t want to put people on the spot to be original on this one. So instead I’ll tag all five people who actually read this. Or if the number is in fact 500, this could be the world’s fastest growing meme.

  1. Loks like a pretty good summary of the Bible to me. The eternal destiny of God’s people at the close of Revelation is awe inspiring – Wow!
