“the word on the street”

June 6, 2007

Considering the rather serious tone of my pinkdomino posts as of late, I thought I’d mix it up with some humor. the word on the street is a “translation” of the christian bible by Rob Lacey. It is a paraphrasing of the christian bible that uses “modern” language to “reach” the current generation. The following is an example of the first three “verses”.

First off, nothing. No light, no time, no substance, no matter. Second off, God starts it all up and WHAP! Stuff everywhere! The cosmos in chaos: no shape, no form, no function– just darkness … total. And floating above it all, God’s Holy Spirit, ready to play. Day one: Then God’s voice booms out, ‘Lights!’ and, from nowhere, light floods the skies and ‘night’ is swept off the scene.

Genesis 1:1-3, the word on the street, Rob Lacey

If you aren’t giggling let alone rolling on the floor by now, you probably do not get my sense of humor. Truly this is a translation for the ages.
