The Top Ten Ways Reading the Bible Has Changed My Life
It took me two years to read the Bible cover to cover. For the longest time, I resisted. I refused to read it. Resentment and animosity stood in the way. I blamed religion for a lot of the world’s problems for so long…It wasn’t until I started reading for myself what was in the Bible, that I understood the truth.
Understanding is a simple concept to say, but its reach and implications have no limits. Understanding is wisdom. Even a man on death row can be at peace if he simply understands. And so…I’ve came up with a Top 10 list of Ways Reading the Bible Has Changed My life.
This list wasn’t put in order of importance, nor was it made to project myself as someone important. Just to give you a little background about who I am. I’m a black 34-year-old Christian Conservative born and raised here in the States. I’ve never been to any Christian College or Theocratic School. I’m not a member of any church or congregation. I have no denomination.
I’m just a man who decided to pick up the Bible and read it cover to cover. To learn for myself why things are the way they are? How did it come to this? Is there any hope? What should I do? What is right? What is wrong?
