    the bible is a collection of little books tied together under the same theme. Creation explanations, existence of God and the changing rules of religion as we become less selfish and more loving to our neighbours. The old testament often based actions on the an eye for an eye concept and the new testament on the forgive and forget the sins of the repentant.

    The 66 books of the Bible are an amazing thing. Although our Creator used different men to pen the words, all of these books harmonize.

    In the beginning our Creator, through His firstborn Son, created the heavens and the earth. One of His heavenly sons rebelled and talked Eve (then eventually Adam) into eating from the tree that grew in the middle of the garden. (Although they were told not to).

    That rebellious heavenly Son became known as Satan the devil (because He was a deceiver). Immediately the Kingdom arrangement came to be, in which God's firstborn Son, Christ Jesus would rid the world of wickedness and crush Satan the devil.

    Unfortunately paradise was lost, and mankind began to die. How would they live again? How would paradise be restored? John 3:16 says “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life." This ransom sacrifice would buy back what mankind had lost.

    God's Son said at John 17:3 "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of You, the only True God, AND of the one whom You sent forth, Jesus Christ." Who is the True God that sent forth His Son? What is His name? Our lives depend upon knowing of God and His Son, so it is only reasonable that we find out.

    Why not Yahoo or Google WHAT IS GOD'S NAME right now? Who did Jesus pray to every time He prayed? Please find out, it is Very important.

    confident, in line with a collection of morals that some human beings think of are properly worth living with the help of. the main sensible Christians and Catholics will renowned that issues interior the bible did no longer rather take place, they are fables. A fantasy is a narrative with a lesson to be discovered from it, no longer something that rather befell.

    It's a library. It's a collection of booiks. If you read them all, there's an arc to the story.

    All of creation is the same. You are living the story toward its finish, even now.
