The Bible stands as the most unique book of all time. Many have tried to burn it, ban it, break it. It endures the test of time as God's word (His revelation to mankind).
It has been my privilege to give many Bibles to school students recently. But can they understand it? Is it not a daunting history with Israelite laws? Which parts apply today and which don't? Is it reliable to the originals?
All these are important questions, and that is one of the reasons why I write this blog. By the Lord's help I seek to make the Bible trusted and relevant. It helps people trust the book when they see it operating in a Christian's life.
So understanding the book is important, but living the truth revealed in it is vital. So many religions are a creed or ritual to be assented to without a living connection with the true and living God. The Bible is a revelation from God , for the purpose of connecting us with God, Anything less is superficial and religion without the Bible is fake.
Jesus Christ the Lord , wants to live in our hearts by the working of the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 3)
"being born again , not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever" (1 Peter1:23)
