My daughter found some notes I made in church several years ago. There are three of them.
- The Bible records the Hebrew names (Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah) and Babylonian names (Belteshazzar, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego) for four people. So why do we use one Hebrew name and three Babylonian names to talk about them? That inconsistency bothers me.
- "Not run faster than [we] have strength" is too often taken to mean "run as fast as you want." It should mean "get strength."
- After hearing a very incredible--in the true sense of the word--story, I wrote, "That story sounds about negative ten percent believable. We need a Mormon Snopes." Then I listed possible website names: mormonsnopes.com, faithpromotingrumors.com, theworkandthestory.com, marvelousworkandablunder.com, or correlationmeeting.com. (Crazy Jane noted that Marvelous Work and a Blunder was her favorite.)
