Where's GQ's IQ? Men's Rag Attacks Bible as 'Foolish, Ill-Intentioned"

The Bible is the best-selling book of all time—all time. But the fashion-smart editors of GQ have unequivocally decided that the Good Book isn't worthy of our face time.

No, this is not a twist on words. I'll let you read GQ's very own printed words:

"The Holy Bible is rated very highly by all the people who supposedly live by it but who in actuality have not read it," is how the presumptuous, judgmental critical review opens. Way to paint Christianity with a broad brush.

"Those who have read it know there are some good parts, but overall it is certainly not the finest thing that man has ever produced," the review continues.

Um, yeah, well, man didn't produce it. The Holy Spirit inspired Scripture. Spiritual things are spiritual discerned, according to 1 Corinthians 2:14, and foolish men can't understand them.

Foolish men will call the Word of God foolish out of ignorance and the devil's blinding.

Case in point, GQ speaks of the Bible this way: "It is repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned," the review reads.

Kettle, do you hear the pot calling you? The Bible is none of those things. It is the Word of God which is purified seven times (see Ps. 12:6).

What should we meditate on, then, if not the Word of God? Instead, these glitz and glam editors believe you should read The Notebook by Agota Kristof.
