Simplify

I realize it is a big book, with a lot of words and those words have been divided and studied and murdered by putting numbers next to them and creating chapters and testaments where there were none.  The Bible stands as an innocent victim of man's desire to create a god in his own image. 


What is the proper way to view the Bible?


See it as an insight into the heart of a God who defines Himself as ever present compassion.  Out of this compassion flow mercy, forgiveness and healing.


As you set your gaze on this truly beautiful One, you will become like Him.  Then you become His message to the world, you become love, mercy, forgiveness, and healing.  "Sinners" are drawn to you, the religious hate you, the political elite fear you.


Love is constantly flowing into you and overflowing out of you.  You received this by the blood of the Lamb, your words speak about this with overflowing gratitude, and your life backs up the words because you are not afraid to lay down all that is "self" to the point of death.


Rev. 12:11 "They conquered him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony,
for they did not love their lives
in the face of death."

I just want to present a deep caution, when we "pick a verse", or argue or debate, none of that is "good"!
My other caution is "teachers beware", is the heart of God getting through or are you hindering people from seeing the heart of God by teaching stuff about the book or the people or the whatever?
