Apologetics from an Anabaptist perspective

Big or small, the Bible fits us all

They say that if you take a most powerful magnifying glass, and examine any flower, or even just a blade of grass, that the patterns that we see branch off into hundreds of other patterns, and they branch off into hundreds of others, and so on, and every last thing about it is as perfect as it can be.

Ma says that God shows Himself just as wonderful in making the smallest things perfect and beautiful as He does in the big things, like the sun and the stars and the way they move on their way.

She says that’s the way with the Bible, too.  It fits into the smallest trouble and joys, and helps the stupidest minds, and at the same time it is full of new thoughts for the wisest ones.  The same sentence can shrink up so it just fits the need of the littlest ones, or swell out beyond the thoughts of the biggest ones; and that’s how we know it was inspired by God.  No other book could do it.
