    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 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...

    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?

    Study on Ps 119:6 Desiring to be qualified

    Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands. (NIV) Then I shall not be ashamed when I look upon all Your commandments. (NASB) Ps 119:6 The expression “be put to shame” is found 6 times in Ps 119 V. 31 I hold fast to your statutes, Lord; do not let...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
