Say what you want about religion, say what you want about Christianity… the reality of the situation when it comes to faith for me is that I believe that Jesus was a pretty important person in Human history and that his message of love is one that should be followed. I want to start an online bible study of sorts… while it would be centered around the bible persay (a passage every Saturday) I want to approach it from an intellectual, practical and debate level rather than theological… so without any more talk, lets enter into the first Bible Saturday. The bible was chosen not to isolate any other religions, but as the book that I grew up reading for spiritual guidence as a child it is the one I am most familiar way. I am open to sugestions if you want to participate and give us other topics, they will be welcomed!
“My message shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the light rain upon the tender grass, and as the showers upon the herb. ”
-Passage Deuteronomy 32:2
The Bible is a powerful book, it is the biggest seller in history. It is refered to as the message, the word. What makes you think that a book can hold this much power?
Personally I have found the bible to be a great resource for confort. When I have had difficult times in my life I have been able to open a bible up and just read it to find wisdom. The cool thing for me is that it allows me to interpret the message in a very personal way. Can you think of any other object that can bring this kind of confort guidence and reassurance?
