IF YOU THINK YOU FOUND AN ERROR IN THE BIBLE... READ ON AND YOU WILL FIND THAT IT WAS YOUR ERROR !!!

The Bible was written for all people, not just for certain groups or individuals. Unfortunately, certain groups have taken verses out of context and established their beliefs and this is one of the reasons for the enormous number of denominations claiming to be Christian. An example of missing the point of a lesson can be seen by reading the comment given about our post concerning Christmas. A poor soul thought it was necessary to “correct” the fact that the post said that Thanksgiving is, in fact a religious holiday. This is an example of picking out a particular aspect of the verse and as a result missing the point of the lesson being given. If a little thought was given, this person would have recognized that Thanksgiving is only considered religious in this country and is not a universally accepted holiday such as Christmas or Easter. It is fairly certain that the Christians in England do not celebrate this holiday.

We must always consider the total aspects of any lesson being offered and not use a portion of the verse to validate your own personal beliefs. There are many events in the Bible that probably were not exactly as they were described, but that does not make the lesson any less important. Jesus was probably not crucified on a cross but died on a device that was in the shape of a “T”… This does not mean anything to the story, but there will be some that will claim that all of the crosses hanging on the walls of our churches are wrong. The Old Testament states that if a man has sexual activities with another man that both should be stoned.  There are many women that believe it is therefore alright with God if women engage in lesbian behavior. When we read the Bible, we should be thinking about the point that is being made not the individual events making up the lesson. Many very important and vital facets of doctrine are missed because people find what they believe to be an error within a verse. For the most part, this activity happens when people want to validate their own interpretations rather than adhering to biblical doctrine, and then we have just another denomination.

The Bible is universal and personal interpretation is not going to be acceptable to God. The lessons and doctrine were given to us to find our way to becoming a child of God and being rewarded with eternal life with Him. All souls will exist forever, but where those souls will spend eternity is up to the individual and how they view the Bible. If they look at it as just a possible method of salvation and adoption and accept convenient alterations made by man, they are going to be in for a big surprise upon their death. But, those who use the Bible as the only means of attaining entrance into the Kingdom, have a very good chance of attaining that miraculous gift.

The Bible does require thought from the individual and if a particular verse or statement is confusing, God will provide the help to give that person the proper understanding. But, He also knows who is sincere and who is just hoping by just reading the Bible without considering all the aspects of the lessons and doctrine given to us… The example of suggesting that Thanksgiving is a religious holiday is an indication of lack of thought and making quick determinations, but missing the point !!!

And, never forget or underestimate the attempts of Satan to persuade you that you are right in doubting biblical verses because there appears to be inconsistencies, but read on and you will find that it all comes together at some point into a universally acceptable lesson or doctrine…
