The Bible is Life Say Devout Christians

    Many devout Christians use the Bible being an operations manual for surviving in their life experience and for them the Bible is alive and the words are alive and God is alive speaking for them through those words. Is the Bible really life? One philosopher believes it is not and he gives several reasons for his belief and his judgment of the concept. Alive Christians The modern-day philosopher or states;

    The Bible isn't life, nor could it be alive, it is really a book. Books have characters, symbols and letters which make up words. Words aren't alive either. They are tools mankind uses to propel communication in a written form. Your sensory input from reading these symbols doesn't allow you to automatically KNOW anything.

    I provide the Bible its due credit as a "must read" story, exactly like I think people should read Isaac Asimov Foundation Series, Shakespeare, Plato, Ayn Rand, Machiavelli, Carl von Clausewitz, Charles Dickens, Crime and Punishment, in addition to probably some 100 other notables as a baseline for living ones life. That is more than fair thinking about the possible motives of the writers of the Bible.

    Perhaps the idea of the Bible talking to people is from the vagueness of what and the multiple interpretations of each verse. Nevertheless, many devout Christians believe that the Bible is alive and the language are the words of God talking with them. I certainly hope this information is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is easy; to assist you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thanks for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.

    This is the reason Jesus warned us saying essentially; before you commit yourself to the Christian cause, before you become My follower and soldier of the cross, COUNT THE COST, I need you to learn exactly that which you are engaging in; what following Me means. You will need to carry a cross and carrying that cross implies that you are likely to be scarred, you will be bruised, and you are likely to suffer.

    When Paul was converted and submitted to the Master's will and great command, he became the filth of the world, the scum of the earth. It does not sound much just like the converted today. We are more like James and John who desired choice seats in the Kingdom. But Jesus bluntly tells them He wasn't offering seats but suffering. Christianity has allowed itself to become too snug and comfortable in worldly garments. We do not desire carrying the cross of blood and sweat, tears and toil. We wish to be Christians but exempt from suffering. The harvest is really great but laborers are few.

    To be always a servant of Christ, at any angle we decide to look at it, one must realize that the servant is not much better than his Master. And our Lord was despised and rejected of men; and the better Christian and missionary we are, the more the world will treat us because it treated Him. If we are not being abused and misused by the world, we could need to re-examine ourselves to see if we are indeed, in the faith.
