    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    To Learn

    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...
