Warning Label

This photo has been floating around blogland:

My blog-brother-from-another-mother referenced the label on his blog.

Here's a closer look at the label.

So the question being put out to Christians is this: how do we explain this label to non-christians?

First: you can't take the warning seriously: It's not a work of fiction. One must make a decision to take the Bible as literally as possible. Vewing the Bible as fiction is the root of the problem. In fact, viewing it as fiction is more ignorant than the statements made in the "Exposure Warning."

Second: I love the "Content Advisory". If it was a movie, it would have to be rated "R". That would make the Bible a best seller.

Oh, yeah. It already is.

The bottom line is that this book is God's Story about Him reaching out to man. All of the bad stuff listed in the label is the obvious proof that man has a broken relationship with God.

In the Garden of Eden, Man was given the option of having a planet where God was God resulting in a perfect place to live and raise a family. But Man decided that God's rules must be some kind fiction and decided to be god themselves. (Listen to Ravi Zacharias' podcast this week).

Thus the label's "Content Advisory".
