As the title says
By reading it.
Yeah but, do I read it from beginning to end or do I need to read something specific out of it? That's what I mean.
Unfortunately I can't edit thread titles on this board.
No shortcuts to enlightenment Cronik, read it from beginning to end.
Interesting. Driving home for me tonight was a spiritual thing. The sun set was astonishing and the sky was on fire and the silhouettes of the trees also astonishing.
I thought to my self: and we are here by and all this by unmeasurable improbability if only there was a maker.
I started to many years ago yet had only progressed maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the way through. The St. James language makes it a tough and slow read for me.
Start from page 1, Psalms was a really tough one for me to try to get through. I spent many years in the food industry and it is amazing to read how the Old testament told you to treat food items and cooking utensils. They didn't have a microscope to see the germs but they knew how to handle food safely. That was fascinating.
And I am not a religeous individual but I am facinated by how humanity gravitates to "religion". Also interesting to read how the canon of the Bible was decided upon y the Catholic church.
Christianity, Judaism and Islam share many figures in history. Much of the Old testament is taken from the Talmud and is the God of Retribution. The New Testament
For a techie, the big question is :
Are we sure that what we are reading is exactly as the original?
We simply just can't compare the hashes of two different versions, so that's that.
Now, there are a lot of fascinating things inside, but also a lot of things that don't really make sense.
The king James version is an edited version, basically parts he didn't like or anything that cast him in a bad light with the public.
Start with the four Gospels.
the old testament is the Jewish religion.
Yes, you can. Look above your first post, on the right side, there should be a link to "thread tools" or something like that. There should be a popup menu with an option to "edit title".
For the advanced readers holding the book upside down and reading it backwards is the ultimate challenge.
The New International Version Bible (NIV) is a popular audiobook because it modernized the ancient text and made it more understandable for today's readers. The entry combines accuracy and readability, presenting stories in a touching manner.
Its best to read it from the very beginning, it will pointless to skip stuff if you want to understand and be aware of everything. You only read specific stuff if you're trying to tell or explain something to someone. Also just my opinion, but i only recommend you read the King James Version.
I have the Modern English Version(MEV) and from the little bit I've read it won't be hard for me to comprehend or whatever the correct word is.
LoL, read the whole thing, you will find some of the Old Testament shocking, it is a great read.
If you want to check out some interesting stuff read the Esoteric Christianity stuff.
One thing you will find is that you were just preached the fluff.
ah, comprehend is the keyword...I've seen members of my family argue over what a certain phrase/parts in the Bible meant.
I just crack open a cold one and thank the Lord for this beer I'm about to receive
Hey, Jesus was a Cool Dude!, he actually turned water into wine!
Now that's cool stuff, I don't care who you are...
Just read it @Cronik. Beginning to end. To be honest, it wouldn't hurt to ask the Lord for wisdom and enlightenment while reading.
Most of us were taught at morning Sunday School classes.
Since I made this thread I'm wondering if anyone can help me find a bible verse.
I was buying legacy video games off of ebay and someone sent a bible verse wishing a long life with the game I bought. I lost it and it probably fell into the trash. I've found personal items that accidentally fell into my trash can in the past. The trash can doesn't sit directly underneath my desks. It's positioned from time to time where just about anything can fall off my desks and into the trash. I was very upset that I didn't find it. I tore apart my room looking for it. I gave that piece of paper the bible verse was printed on sentimental value(Wut? It came with a video game and the guy who sold it to me is probably a gamer themselves.) and it sat underneath my mouse pad for a while.
