    To become of Jehovah's Witnesses you must study

    for a year so I had to make the commitment to reading the whole Bible. Also I am kind of a Conspiracy Nut who likes to research prophecy so if a certain prediction claims to be Biblically based I look it up to be certain it is true. I try to read the Bible in general for at...

    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...

    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...

    I Need Help Concerning Ex. 6:12

    I'm reading the Bible from cover to cover, and have recently finished Genesis. Wonderful book! Now that I'm in Exodus, I found a verse that confused me. Exodus 6:12 reads: "And Moses spoke before the LORD, saying, 'The children of Israel have not heeded me. How then shall...

    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 Love God

    Is it easy to say it more than to do it? I love God, but do I do the things that show that I really love Him?

    I Love the Bible

    Even before I was a Christian I had a passion to learn other religions. All of my electives my first year of college was religion/language oriented. I took Hebrew, Greek, and World religion, Jewish Philosophy, and the rest was art. I paid for a summer class to...

    I need a lil help with a question

    that will help me out tremendously- I'm told I'm flawed for being too servant to others and need to 'love myself first' to be able to love others... Never mind that I have some self defeating flaws being of an abusive upbringing- I feel loved by loving others to the fullest. I...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
