Please don’t get me into trouble.
Even though I’ve created a synopsis of some of the main points, I strongly encourage everyone to read the bible from the beginning to the very end, at least once. I don’t want to get into trouble with the BOSS here. In the bible we’re told in various places to tread carefully when we’re dealing with GOD’s Word. For instance as follows,
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
See, the bible explicitly warns against people leaving things out or adding things to God’s Word. People who do so are promised to go to a really hot place. I don’t tolerate heat very well. When it gets over 30 degrees where I live in Queensland I kinda struggle with wet towels on my head and have my feet dangling in a bucket of ice water.
So please, if you don’t get to read the bible, when you go knocking on those gates, tell them at least that you were encouraged to do so by me and that I wasn’t pretending that I have all the answers. Cause I most certainly don’t. Not by a long shot.
I am just a fallible human being who loves her bible, and has fallen for the main author. So as not to get in trouble I prefer ‘Sola Scriptura.’
Sola Scriptura is latin for scripture alone. It means that if any person says anything that is not in line with scripture, I give preference to scripture because I acknowledge God’s Word as authoritative on all matters.
This is my disclaimer.
I know that I won’t be able to cover everything. I don’t intend to. I intend to give my readers a taste of what the bible has to say about ‘living for ever’ without any church, synagogue or denominational flavour added to this. Just scripture. That’s all.
