An unknown writer said, "This Book (BIBLE) is the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding; it's histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's word, and the Christian's character. Here paradise is restored, heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand subject, our good it's design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. Follow its precepts and it will lead you to Calvary, to the empty tomb, to a resurrected life in Christ; yes, to glory itself, for eternity.
B.I.B.L.E. = BASIC INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE LEAVING EARTH!
THIS IS THE WAY AND THE LIGHT!
I LOVE WHAT THIS UNKNOWN WRITER HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE BIBLE. IT IS THE ESSENCE OF ALL CREATION AND LIFE IN MY OPINION AND I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.:)
