Finally Answer to Yes

If only I'd know about this back then, I never would have put the big red A up over there:

In the first-ever union of the Word of God and the Synthesizer, the Catholic Church's College of Cardinals voted unanimously Monday to incorporate the lyrics of Yes into the New Testament.

* * *

'Let us rejoice in this momentous occasion,' said Pope John Paul II in a special service at St. Peter's. 'And let no man be unmoved, remembering the words of Jesus: 'In and around the lake, mountains come out of the sky, and they stand there.' Amen.'
Now that's my kind of theology! You'd think Genesis would be a better fit, given the name and the Revelation-inspired end of "Supper's Ready." But, somehow, it all works:
Perhaps the most significant change is a more complete history of the life of Christ. In the revised account of Christ's temptation by Satan, the Lord and Savior is brought to a mountaintop overlooking a pastel landscape filled with exotic, half-melted rock formations and wispy, cloudlike trees. Christ, though tempted, "can see all good people turn their heads each day, and, so satisfied, He continues on His way."

Christ's rejection of the Lord Of Lies is then followed by a 16-minute keyboard solo by synthesizer maestro Rick Wakeman.
I wonder how Yes-led scriptures would interact with those Starfleet worshipers?

Not well.

Until Jesus Christ and that God guy go through academy training and are able lead Galaxy-class starships into a deadly confrontation with the Borg, we won't pay any of those two no mind. Yes lyrics or no Yes lyrics.

Don't get me wrong this is a great improvement over those boring black and white comics from KJV Bible. But they still have a long way to reach the divinity of Captain Jean Luc Picard.
