Yes that’s the book for me!
My world revolves around the Westminster confession of faith, the shorter catachism, Calvin’s points and Tradition.
Or it had with out questions. I’m not abandoning these but I am surrounding myself with Christian s who aren’t like me. It’s refreshing. I don’t have to challenge their position nor save them. But embrace the fact that there’s no one right answer to how the Bible explains history, or behavior.
The Bible isn’t a fine tune historical narrative. You want find answers to how all those people got here on the planet for Adams kids to get brides.
You will find the only two essential to life elements. The gospel and salvation.
Gospel isn’t so much that ……. Well feed the poor, clothe the poor help the fatherless, visit the prisoner, do battle for the forgotten, love the unlovable. This includes I believe the gay, the refugee, the prisoner, the leper, the women, whomever is at your path….Love.
Salvation isn’t so much that you exit stage left….. It’s more like you live now,knowing there’s a bigger picture you will never understand, and you are forgiven and cleansed , because of someone else who’s name is Jesus, even though you can’t stop it. The sin.
