The Bible - God's Word

The Bible is at least 2000 years old, yet it continues to uphold the same truths throughout the centuries. It has been fought against by many foes yet continues to endure. It contains amazing descriptions of science; history; faith; theology; analysis of the heart, mind and conscience and godly living that continues to prove itself in our rapidly advancing information age.

Many people read the Bible looking for flaws, excuses or contradictions. They do what many have done over the years, "twist the Scriptures to their own destruction". It is foolish to try and twist God's word for your own advantage. Some read the Bible trying to justify sin in their life. Others read the bible and try to condone sodomy or any other wicked thing.

God never changes, Jesus doesn't change either (He remains our High priest forever to mediate for us at the right hand of God Almighty). In fact "the Word of the Lord will endure forever". "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do [give an account]. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."--(Hebrews 4:12-16 KJV)

May you fall on the firmly grounded rock of Jesus who is the Christ/Messiah and humble yourself before the only true Almighty God who sent His son to be the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is the best master, the closest friend, our redeemer, our teacher and our guide.
