The Bible And Its Purpose

The Bible is a collection of various historical writings of authors. The purpose of the Bible referred to as scripture, is to give us knowledge of the world, we live in and the creator of all the things that exist. It is noted, All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (II Timothy 3:16)

The Bible is a sacred book unlike any other that has been written. It is one of the special gifts that is given to others in the Spirit of Love, and received with honor. We call it Holy, because of the introduction, of God to us, The Father of all creation, Jesus Christ, The Son Of God, who became the sacrificial offering for the sins of the world, and the Holy Spirit, and the Angels of God.

Therefore, we should never use the scripture as a personal weapon, to judge others, or for political purposes, but as a personal tool, to measure our standards as to how God want us to behave in a way that pleases him.

Steadfast Trust In God

God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted with him. (Acts 10:34)

The things we need from God, to satisfy our human desires and needs, are beyond the ability for man to accomplish. In order to find perfect peace in our daily life, we must have steadfast trust in God to heal our entire being: body, mind, and spiritual being (soul) These are things that no man-made products can never accomplish, and the hands of the most skillful can never perform them.

We can achieve our desires and needs from God, when we do the things that pleases him. That is to follow the example of Jesus Christ, who prayed persistently to God, though being the Son of God, he humbled himself in submission to the creator of all flesh, and of all the things that exist in the heavens and Earth. There is  one God, and his power, and one world.

*The disciple is not above his master, but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. (Luke 6:40)
* Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unremovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
* As we have therefore opportunity, therefore let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10)
Give us help from trouble for vain is the help of man.
Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.  (Psalm 108: 12,13)

Fake Religion Is Like Fake Money

Fake Religion is like Fake Money, both are of no value.

I would rather be in the company of a non-religious person, who believe that God created all people equal, and show respect for other people, than to be in the company of a religious person, who talk about loving God, and show disrespect for others. The mean spirited things said, are not in the heart of a person who believe that God created all people equal.

We are taught from the bible, known as the Word of God, that there is one creator, who created the human race in his image and likeness equal in every way. Therefore, to  show disrespect to another person, is to show disrespect to God.

* If a man say, I love God, and hate his brother, he is a liar; for he that love not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? ( 1 John 4:20 )
*And his commandment have we from him, That he who loves God love his brother also.
(1 John 4:21)
To discriminate against another person, to show bias, prejudiceness, and such behavior, to say mean spirited things about another person, and to cause harm to another person because of evil thoughts and a hateful attitude are acts that God take personal.
*And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
(Matthew 25:40 )
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25:46)

We can conclude, all the time that a person spends talking about their love for God, and not having the value of God's Love expressed to other people is fake religion, that is of no value.
