Once upon a time, boys were boys, girls were girls, and binary was a mathematical term.
The Bible repeatedly warns us against this temptation: “You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it” (Deut. 4:2; 12:32); “And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book” (Rev. 22:19). Ecclesiastes says that the words of the wise are like goads given by the Shepherd (God) and warns, “My son, beware of anything beyond these” (12:12). The old saying “a place for everything, and everything in its place” is applicable here. Every biblical book has its rightful place in the canon of Scripture and contributes to the overall message, meaning that no passage is dispensable.
