Yesterday I purchased “The Brick Bible” by Brendan Powell Smith. Below is an  image of “The Brick Bible” I didn’t add any photos of the author Brendan Powell Smith but you can research him on the web. Typical Google searches of his name list him as an Atheist however I do not know much about him myself. It does appear however that he may intend to offer a new telling of the story of Jesus judging by The Brick Bible’s tagline “A new spin on the story of Jesus”

The brick bible cover

While the illustrations are visually appealing, the book is deceptive as it uses Legos to illustrate bible stories making it appear kid friendly. There are many images in “The Brick Bible” that parents definitely should view before approving “The Brick Bible” for their children. I could go on and on about The Brick Bible’s controversies but one that really got my attention was the depiction of David and Jonathan. In one image The Brick Bible depicts David and Jonathan kissing (1 Samuel 20:41). There could have been any depiction of them kissing but Brendan Powell Smith’s interpretation shows two legos kissing each others lips.  I highly advise parents to screen “The Brick Bible” before offering it to your children.

Have you ever killed anyone?

In war careless talk kills.

Unfortunately, war is not the only time when careless talk is destructive. When we speak carelessly and without thought about our brothers and sisters in Christ we play into the enemies plan to destroy the character of the saints. The bible speaks of hasty words (words without thought) and harsh words (words without compassion). These are the types of words that routinely kill the character of others and cause emotional damage that often takes years to repair. James chapter 3 describes the tongue as a fire that cannot be tamed. Let us be sure that the flames of our tongue are used to destroy the kingdom of darkness and not the very ones that are called alongside us in life to glorify and to make the Lord known in the Earth.

“There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.” Proverbs 12:18 ESV

“There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking.” Proverbs 29:20

 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness…my brothers this should not be”   James 3:9-11 paraphrased.
