    How has the bible helped me?

    The Bible has brought me an amazing joy, passion, peace, love, and truth unlike anything else in my life. However, more importantly it has brought me into a personal loving relationship with Jesus Christ. For that is what it is all about! A loving walk with God.

    Well, anyways, you will read a few things within the Bible that you may not understand or grasp at first; But it is a very exciting adventure!

    A few things I need to let you know (If you don't know them yet):

    1. God is love and we are commanded to love Him with everything we are and have.

    2. We are to love and forgive everyone. Including our enemies.

    3. Salvation is only in Jesus Christ.

    4. Jesus was God Almighty in the flesh and He died for everyone's sins.

    5. Everyone must repent of their sins to Jesus and become born again.

    6. If a Christian slips or sins, they have to confess that sin to Jesus.

    7. The New Covenant rules under Jesus Christ (In the New Testament) completely replaces the Old Covenant rules in the Old Testament.

    8. The Old Testament may have some harsh laws and judgments that you may not understand at first. I suggest doing an internet search on the Christian perspective on these topics or buy a good Bible Commentary.

    9. In the Old Testament times, God had sometimes sent His people (i.e. the Israelites) to destroy sinful people and nations. However, please understand that God is outside of time and He can read people's hearts 100% and know if they are truly good or evil.

    10. The Lord our God is one God but He exists in three persons (i.e. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) (1 John 5:7).

    11. We are commanded to preach the good news of salvation to other people.

    12. Pray for God's glory and will in your life and not your own will and purpose on things.

    Here's a question for you. Is bible the word of a God? Then why does it make him look like a jackass?

    The Bible helped me see that Christianity was bullsh!t. I mean, the condoning of slavery, the sexism, the racism, the cruelty and murders... after reading the Bible I just knew I couldn't be a Christian anymore.

    You are talking about which Bible? There are varieties of Bibles written by many Humans! Old testament and New Testaments!

    (Where is the Old Testament? Why it is hidden? Do you know the New Testament was written by 40 persons on different times with Contradictions, Vulgar Words also with Changes and New Versions? How can a person believe it as it is from God?

    http://in.search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=A8pWBichtt1...

    Why there is NO only one Bible, like only one Holy Quran?

    (For your Good Knowledge: The Holy Quran was Revealed from God Allah [Who Created you, me and whole universe] to Prophet Mohammed by VOICE, through Angel Gabriel, before 1400 years. Later it was written, Since then, there is no change in it's Arabic Origin. You can't find any contradictions or a single vulgar word in Holy Quran. Translations may vary. Because they are done by humans).

    The Quranic Verses are not only for those olden days, they are to follow today and tomorrow.

    There are many Scientific Truths in Holy Quran.

    To learn, go to Yahoo search, for Free Holy Quran in your language and free Islamic Books and Quran and Science :

    To learn go to Yahoo search to get Islamic Research Foundation's website, click on Publications then Comparative Religion then click on Christianity and Islam:

    To learn why did they become Muslim, search thru Yahoo :

    To learn which religion is growing fast in the world, check thru Yahoo :

    The Only One God Allah (Who Created you, me and whole universe) Says in Holy Quran Chapter 3 Verse 64 :

    Say, "O People of the Scripture (Holy Books), come to a word that is equitable between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah ." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].

    (You will be the witness on the "Judgement Day", as I informed you about Islam, the True Path).

    God Allah gave you the thinking power. Think again and again. Ask yourself, Why? How? Is there any Scientific Proofs? The Holy Quran has the reply. I can't push you to embrace Islam. You have to realize yourself. Nothing to loose, something to gain for the life hereafter. May Almighty Allah Show you the Right Path.

    Allah Says in Holy Quran : Chapter 2 Verse 256. There is no compulsion in religion (Islam)....
