Purpose

Submitted by Stephen Winters

What is our purpose here on earth? Why did God put us here? What does he want us to do? Answers to these, and similar questions will help determine what careers we choose.

One verse that is quoted over and over again by many Christians is:

Matthew 28:19-20 "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

The Bible Throughout the Years

Submitted by Stephen Winters

If we make a claim that God wrote the Bible through the hands of men, and that it was perfect, infallible, inerrant in it's original documents, then we would also have to believe that God was also in control of all the people that copied and translated the bible throughout the milenia of time. If that was true, then why was the Bible locked away for centuries in Latin, only available to the priests and monks? If the Bible was truly the Word of God, then why did God not make it immediately available to all people from the very beginning.

Asking Questions

Submitted by Stephen Winters

It's OK to ask questions. In fact, if you ask the right questions it will change your life. Don't be afraid to ask questions of God, of the Bible, about work, family, etc. Learning the art of asking questions is more important than the answers that come. When you focus on asking questions (even of the answers that come) your percepts will change.
