Rambling About The Good Book

Standard

I think believers need to read scripture using ones mind and heart. John Wesley an Anglican cleric and founder of the Methodist movement devised a system of using reason, tradition, experience and scripture when reading the Bible. The same system could be used for other religious texts too. 

Much of what is written is based upon stories, context and word of mouth. I personally believe God is bigger than the Bible and there are things happening today where his grace is being expressed and demonstrated daily. The story of God’s love and work in this world is still being written. 

The key to applying ones faith is to love your neighbor as yourself always keep that on the forefront of your mind.

This is for all the crazy Christians out there who have experienced a lack of scripture from the Bible in one situation or another. Jon Acuff is a great commentator on Christianity and its people. Very satirical, very profound.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.

Isaiah 9:6-7
