There's a big controversy blazing through the Internet this week, and for the life of me, I cannot figure out what the big deal is. Apparently a Costco store labeled their Bibles"fiction" and people got upset. So, um, it's not? Because this is news to me.
Oh calm down, I'm kidding. Of course I know many people of faith believe in the literal truth of the Bible. It was a pastor, Caleb Kaltenbach, who spotted the Bibles at a Costco in Simi Valley, California. He tweeted a photo of the Bible to spark a conversation. The store later apologized and said the placement was a mistake. The Bibles probably should have been labeled "religion." Whether or not you believe in the literal truthfulness of the Bible, that is certainly the genre most of us associate it with. But just to be certain, we reached out to Jesus Christ for a comment.
