    Reading the Holy Bible Activates something in

    my heart and spirit, lower the music your listening to that's in your ear and read aloud the bible, where it's quiet and peace, if not alone but quiet, read to yourself and hear the words of God!

    I have a question about the 5th commandment:

    Honor thy father and mother. What if your parents were/are not good people. What if they wanted you to sin? What if they abused you or treated you really badly? What if they teased you because you believed in God? How do you honor the un-honorable?

    I love the Bible, especially the beautiful

    language of the KJV. It's a big, difficult, complicated book altogether though. To say one is "Bible Believing" suggests the acceptance of a literal interpretation of the whole thing. It's a little bit more complex and nuanced than that.

    there is no other authority other

    than the Bible that I go by bc it is the word of God and to go against the Bible is to go against God. As we read it everyday may we grow in our relationship with Jesus :) so many don't know that true Christianity is not a religion is a relationship with the King of Heaven. :)

    God loves because that is His nature.

    He is love (see 1 John 4:8). He may not always love everything we do, but He does love us. God's love is the power that forgives our sins, heals our emotional wounds and mends our broken hearts (see Psalm 147:3). God's love is unconditional; it is based on Him, not us! Once we...
