    Studying The Bible

    I enjoy Bible Study---much more than the actual services at my church. I do find many sermons interesting, but I've always preferred the "classroom" style of SS. Kind of reminds me of seminars in college, where you can ask questions. As a Christian, I have the same qualms and...

    I Love The Word

    It's fascinating how God speaks through scripture. Knowing the words have been transliterated from Greek, Hebrew and ancient languages is appealing in the fact the Word of God is ancient. "Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path" Psalm 119-105

    Why So Many Different Christian Interpretations?

    Have you ever wondered why are there so many different Christian interpretations? If all Christians have the same Bible, and the same Holy Spirit, should not Christians be able to agree? What is up with that?In Ephesians 4,"There is one body and one Spirit just as you were called...

    Jeremiah 7:22 1 Samuel 15:22 Amos 5:22 To name a few!  It was the desire of the ancient Israelites to imitate the pagans around them who sacrificed to their many gods for LITERAL CONSUMPTION!  The G-d of the Hebrew Scriptures had no need of flesh!  What is...
