Frank L. Hoffman Interviewed: Why did God stop writing to us after the Bible was written?
Comments by Frank L. Hoffman - 22 May 2003
Dear Colin and Others:
Let's look at Biblical and other truths in a different way. Surely, on this veg-Christian list there have been many comments made that are worthy of being included in the list of quotations your sent, but that doesn't mean that we have to change the Bible to include them.
Around the world there are bureaus of standard where certified weights and measures are kept, and by which all other weights and measures are calculated. The Bible is one of these standards by which all other "truths" can be evaluated.
The Bible does include the sayings of non-Hebrews, too. Balaam is one example. He knew and spoke the truth of God, but he didn't follow God. His donkey was even more Godly, for she wouldn't knowingly allow harm to come to anyone.
Others may make Biblical messages easier for some people to understand, and if they are truthful, they are also speaking for God in the prophetic sense of speaking forth the word of God as defined in the Bible.
If we go back to the basics of belief, faith and love, and add compassion and peace, we have the Biblical filtering agent by which the truths you sent can be received. Yet every day, we seem to hear of someone claiming to speak for God telling their followers to kill others. Surely, no one on this List would want to include their message into a revised Bible. However, there are places in which such a message might well be included. This is the reason that I don't believe we either need to, of should, revise the Bible. It has been our standard of measure for thousands of years.
In the Love of the Lord,
