    2,415 words
    The Bible as History The question of whether the Holy Bible is an actual historical account of what happened since the beginning of humanity, or merely stories that man has come up with over time has long been considered. Many choose to believe the Bible literally and take everything word for word. Others believe the stories in the Bible are a way of showing God's love for us, but think of them as stories and lessons on how to follow the "way of God". Others think the stories in the Bible are fa...

  • Great Respect For The Bible
    764 words
    I love God. With my entire heart I burn for him. As a freshman in high school He called me, not with words or anything audible, but by his mere presence; a holy desire within my spirit that wants to love his people, and bring them into a romantic love-relationship with Him. The calling was as a whisper at first, just a small urge, almost a whim, but now it has grown into a war cry that rages in my soul. I'm not sure exactly how literature has affected that, well secular literature; the main infl...

  • Doctrine Of An Inerrant Bible
    386 words
    If the Bible is indeed the Word of God, perfect and without error, then the issue is settled. Homosexuality is a sin and we must condemn it's practice. However, if the Bible is the writings of men who were only capable of seeing dimly, as if in a mirror, the way Paul described it, then we have a long way to go before we settle the question.

    of God the moral way through The Bible.

  • Nature And The Bible
    2,864 words
