The Holy Bible

The Holy Bible is a sacred record of the Lord Jesus Christ and His gospel. Without it, you would not know how to follow Him. You read the Bible for inspiration, and to become a better Christian through the application of Christ’s atonement in your daily life.

Note! No existing man-made Bible study resource, no matter how thoughtful or erudite, including commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias, preaching or this website, can replace reading the Bible itself for inspiration in your life, and for receiving direction on how to conduct your life following the example of Jesus in word, thought, and deed.

Inspiration comes through the Holy Spirit as you (1) search the Bible for meaning; (2) ponder the meaning of what you find; and (3) apply the lessons learned. It takes discipline. It takes commitment. It takes a strong desire to follow Him who declared: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (see John 14:6; NASB, NIV, ESV).

William Tyndale

William TyndaleProtestant reformer and Bible translator William Tyndale (c. 1494-1536) gave his life because he believed in the power of the Bible. He said, “The nature of God’s word is, that whosoever read it, or hear it reasoned and disputed before him, it will begin immediately to make him every day better and better, till he be grown into a perfect man” (S. Michael Wilcox, Fire in the Bones: William Tyndale—Martyr, Father of the English Bible [2004], xv).

Abraham Lincoln

William TyndaleDevout Christian and sixteenth president of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), said of the Bible: “This Great Book … is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Saviour gave to the world was communicated through this book. But for it we could not know right from wrong” (Don E. Fehrenbacher, Speeches and Writings Part 2, 1859–1865 [1989], 628; emphasis added).
