NOT EVEN CLOSE: Do not pray; I hope so. Pray I know so. You may not get what you ask for, but what you need. Not when you ask for it, just when you need it. All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth. ( Matthew) 28:18) There were no interviews, no book signings, no pictures with authors, no book clubs. Not even publishers with book deals and money changing hands. 40 authors written in a period of approx. 1600 yrs. Approx. 1500B.C. to 100 after Christ. 66 books, 1189 chapters, 23,214 Old Testament verses, 7,959 New Testament verses. 622,771 words, Old Testament, 184,590 New Testament. Consider the time frame, many authors never met let alone knew each other. On the surface nothing to gain and much to lose; and many did with their lives. It has been said the unity of the Bible is a miracle. And so it is. Nothing written or that ever will be written even comes close. Not Even Close!! Authors with varied backgrounds. Kings, fishermen, public officials, farmers, teachers, and physicians. Covering religion, laws, science,poetry, biography, and prophecy. Not to mention the ultimate guide through life to eternal life. Nothing else but God's word offers that! The authors all knew something we all should know, and did not compromise, come what may! They all got it so at least we would be given a chance to get it!! ( mull that over) How did it come about? Available in the billions in thousands of languages around the world. Christ said, " Go into all the world and preach the Gospel". Does you no good unless you read it. A chapter a day would take the blues away if you let it.( Start with Romans). Again, how did it come about? 2 Peter 1:21 gives us an answer. For " No prophecy was ever made by an act of the human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. God's gift to you, God's love for you, God speaking to you. Saying I still need women and men and I have a plan for you and eternal life with Me!! At the end of the day, all our arrogant selves will any of us find a better offer than that? Remember, the price has been paid. Does anything really beat that? Be honest!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!!
