Inside the Holy Bible you’ll discover some statements
that can only be described as “truly remarkable,” no matter which way you interpret them.
TIMOTHY 3:16–17 is one of
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”
It’s probably a good thing that what’s available in the Scriptures was pulled together, documented and agreed many generations ago!
Well, it was created by people much more naive than we are folks are today. By ‘naïve’ I mean that these were people who’s FAITH was way simpler than ours today.
When you dig into the Bible (and it doesn’t matter where), one thing you’ll find truly interesting is that those writers weren’t afraid of the great claims and promises written into the holy text.
It’s similar across other faiths and religions, and this tells us a lot about faith and how important it is to not second-guess or doubt what’s possible for you.
Now here’s something to think about (…as scary as it is!)
What if, and it’s a big “IF,” what if some of the leaders of religion in our current times set out to create scriptures on the basis of traditions like the ones given to those early day biblical writers?
I’ve no doubt in my mind that, with their more sophisticated scholarship and their smaller concepts, they’d end up creating a Bible.
But, it’d probably be such that, while it might be incredibly perfect from a writing and literary perspective, it’d lack the greatness and rugged ‘Power of Faith’ which the Bible currently possesses.
An interesting perspective, prompted by such a simple verse on the power of Scriptures …
