The Good in the Bible

This post is to two groups of people. There are the Atheists who point to all the wrong in the world and say “this is God’s doing” and to the barbarism of the Old Testament. And there are Christians, or perhaps people who call themselves Christians, who seem to have never read a Bible – certainly many of these types don’t condone the positivity that’s found there.

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling (1 Peter 4:8-9).”

“It is more blessed to give than to receive. (Acts 20:35)”

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24 & Mark 10:25 & Luke 18:25)”

  1. When it comes to the Bible, I find that many – even Christians themselves – busy themselves in the teachings of the Old Testament. Many groups, I’m sure you know which, enjoy pointing out the Books pre-Christ. Strange enough, these books could not be Christian Books as Christianity came with Christ.

    When it comes to the lessons in the Bible itself, it needs reflection and thought – not pure reading, lifting and applying just to suit our own desire and needs.

    Interesting insight. Rich when given thought.
