The Bible is next for the Wiki-verse

In a drive-thru world where everyone seems to be shouting at the microwave to hurry up, it’s fitting that this country wants a Burger King religion and “have it their way.” Well, thanks to the blessing of modern-day technology, now you can.

Meet WikiBible.

Yes, as in, “If you don’t like it, rewrite it.” Well, now all those pesky Old Testament scriptures that cause rednecks and liberal theologians alike so much angst, now you too can have something common in with Moses. Write another chapter of the Bible if you want.

Evidently, the WikiBible is “a wikiproject to create an original, open content translation of the source text of the Bible that will be in the Public Domain.”

THIS is why the Wall exists. You think God is crazy about this idea? Lemme consult the original version:

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book (Revelation 22:18-19).

Here’s another quip from the Site:

This is a work in progress. Everyone is welcome.

Sorry? The Bible… work in progress… seriously? I realize a nice “Amen” moment in churches across this great land of ours is that Acts 29 is being written TODAY. That’s called a metaphor, Wikiheads. You can’t actually put pen to paper and write the “Book of (insert your name here).” What is this world coming to? Oh yeah, that’s why we are here.

Big shout out to John at True Discernment for hipping us to this, eh-hem, ‘project’.
