    To Learn

    For me and me alone it is to learn and hopefully in the words of the old song make a "closer walk with thee".   John 3:16 ~ "... that God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have...

    I Study The Bible With A Goal In Mind

    I don't just study the Bible only to get head knowledge or to quote scripture or to make myself appear like I'm a scholar or that I am well versed in the Bible. I study the Bible to understand God's will and purpose in my life. During my regular study of the Bible over the years...

    I am a born again Christian.

    I'll be polite and wait for the laughter die down. I rad the Bible for these reasons. I read it to see how worthless, undesirable, unlovable, messed up, back sliding, Baptist deacon I am. I know I have been forgiven through the blood of Christ. Still I am lower than dirt. If I...

    Often

    Though not so often as I should. I compare multiple translations and check out word meanings in Greek or Hebrew in Strong's. I like the kjv and rsv, I will not use a paraphrase such as the message.

    Study!?

    It makes it sound like school. I study the bible yes, but the problem is, I am a humanist. By what i see is that in this faith of the jews and christians is nothing but trials. Its like your god wants to put you thru hell in order for you to enter this "Heaven". It...

    Try it and ask people to show the length of a

    meter without any help. Very likely the length will differ. Try and ask children the length of a meter - they will likely have no idea at all how long a meter is, they have yet to learn measurments. Life would be horrible without agreed on measurements, without yardsticks and...

    Anyone Here Not Christian?

    I'm just curious to see if there are any others like myself who are not Christian but still find studying the Bible either interesting, rewarding, or a personal goal. As you read it, do you feel yourself becoming drawn to Christianity, like you might become a member? Do you...

    What Is A Soul?

    So far, I've gotten through Deuteronomy and have found that a "soul" is usually described as being the blood or life of a being. Am I right in remembering that the Bible says this? If not, what IS a soul according to the Bible? If blood is the soul, do all animals that...

    The Literal Word Of God

    The Bible is the literal Word of God. There is history, vision, and poetry in it, and each of those should be taken for what they are. The history is all literal of course. This includes most of the Bible. The poetry is symbolic and metaphorical, but teaches truth. The poetry is...
