Beef jerky is one of life's great joys, but good beef jerky can be hard to come by. I remember having some really good stuff that I bought at a gas station (ok, really a small general store attached to a single gas pump) in Upstate New York. It was good. Also, I was driving in a beat up Ford pickup with an Australian. This may have something to do with my positive associations with beef jerky.
One thing I don't associate with beef jerky is Pauline scripture. So I was surprised to read the following on my package of "Grandpa Val's Hot Beef Jerky":
So let us boldly approach the throne of grace. Then we will receive mercy. We will find grace to help us when we need it. Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)
INGREDIENTS: Beef, salt sugar, monosodium glutamate, paprika, spices, garlic, sodium nitrite.
This was weird. But perhaps no more weird than the scripture verse that appears on every edition of the Indianapolis Star
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” II Corinthians 3:17
At least the meaning of this quotation is at least fathomable. The publishers evidently see freedom of the press as connected with liberty; therefore their periodical is imbued with the "Spirit of the Lord".
So did Grandpa Val just get some misguided inspirtation from the Star?
I don't know. But this jerky was heavenly.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is jerky.
