Bible Saturday 2

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”
1 John 4:7

I think that the whole new testament and the story of Jesus can be summed up by a simple message… “Let us love one another.” This simple message transcends culture, religion and language. If we had a little more love inside of us and were able to share that instead of the every day frustrations we experience I personally believe the world would be a better place.

“God is love” is a statement that is very powerful. Even if you don’t believe in God, you might believe in Love. Love is one of the most powerful forces in our lives. It makes us do things that others might deem crazy. You have to admit that a feeling as powerful as love is a gift. The tricky part is that we are also born with this thing called free will, and well, we might chose to not love one another after all.

Bible Saturday

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?
