Thread: Week 4 literature question: clarification?

  1. #1
    In the SAP for the dialectic literature questions, this statement is made to the students:

    "Both conscience and creation speak to people's hearts about their loving Creator. Bits and pieces of revealed truth come to be mixed up in mythology, which is why they are repeated from generation to generation."

    I'm sure my class will ask me about this, but somehow I'm just not understanding what's meant here.

    Anyone able to unpack this for me?

    Grateful for any help!

    Hi Vicki,
    People can learn about the truth about the Creator through their conscience and through creation. So, as myths are propagated from generation to generation, bits and pieces of truth get mixed into myths. Therefore, it is important to be careful and not think that because there is a bit of truth in a story that the whole story is true and accurate.

    Does that help?

    like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
    I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!"

    Got it -- thanks, Dana!

    I am also rather anticipating the question about similarities between secular myths and Biblical events.... do you know any good resources along that line?

    This is a good site to try to find an answer:
    http://www.tektonics.org/

    They include a couple of copy-cat myths on their popular choices page: http://www.tektonics.org/readchoicehub.html, but you can also use the search box found on the home page.
