Do most christians have a foundation of knowledge or insight to the scriptures?
Is it necessary?
Do we have others do it for us?
Do we actually study not read the bible, we have been accustomed to just read the bible, which is almost a sin all by itself. We have been told to read the bible in one year, or two year plan’s like it is a race?
We have been taught to read the stories of the bible as children, to learn the lesson of the time. It is like a manual of life that can be used when we come across the same storyline for us to use in our time of need.
This is what we have been taught, this is what we have done thru tradition or ritual, but is it the purpose of the scriptures?
I believe that it is so much more and so much more relevant to us if we see the bible as a story, a story of God and his kingdom.
For this to happen tho, we have to change the way we look at the bible, it is a story of God,his kingdom, and where they live.
It starts in Genesis 1. Enjoy the story!
