Have been thinking for a while about what is left out of a story (what's happening behind the scenes or whatever), or, what is revealed and what is concealed.
And I've heard people say that the bible reveals all but there are things concealed by the bible, fo sho. I think people want it to be simple. Ha! No such thing.
When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke. And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, "Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down."
Okay, so people don't just do it with religion. I've heard of writers who put everything they think of into their work, like they went through so much painstaking effort to think of this stuff, it shouldn't be left out.
I'm a fan of leaving stuff out.
Misapplication of scripture? Maybe. I think I just wanted to display the reveal/conceal binary.
