God is the Accommodator. He accommodated humanity when he inspired ancient authors to write infallible Scripture to ancient people. Now we follow him by accommodating ancient Scripture when it makes “scientific” claims about the world of nature.
Many say online and behind the pulpit, “It’s right there in the Bible!”
Yes, it does say it in plain black (or red) ink, but not so fast.
We accommodate Scripture all the time. We do not read it literally in every verse, but make interpretational adjustments. We do it so often that maybe we just don’t recognize it.
