The B-I-B-L-E

Submitted by theshovel

Whatever God had actually spoken to individuals in times past - whether recorded or not - ultimately testified of Christ, who is the EVERYTHING of God. Somehow, though, our Christian perspective on those collected written words forces them to serve as our textbook or owner's manual or as some call it: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. I wonder where we get the idea that this is distinctly Christian? How is it then that this mindset instigates the same concepts and reactions in our Christian marketplace as it did with the Jews when Jesus walked among them?

From Is The Bible Our Owner's Manual?

most excellent dig and comments  :)

Great ponderings David.

oh and on that subject. how much of what the establishment church calls basic is just a re rendering of old law? Like Jim says here on this post “basic” is Christ and him crucified. now THAT'S basic.wink

Being able to label something gives  the ability to control the outcome. “Basic instructions for leaving earth” the one who quantifies what those instructions are is the one in control . if we are led by the spirit of Christ in us and it appears to disagree with others interpretations we are told WE are the disobedient ones,the lawless, where in reality if we didn't have the collected writings at all and only his word written on our hearts,which we already do,then  we will be led by that and not by someone elses self driven interpretation of “scripture”.

It's worthwhile to ask the question my freind.

Random Shovelquote: Realize the freedom (view all shovelquotes)

How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
