Do you read from the Bible or read into the Bible? Do you know the difference?
What does Biblical interpretation mean to you? What should it mean and how should you delve into and teach the most Holy Precepts of our LORD? By your will or His?
We have a major problem in our churches; people, even pastors go to the Bible and just collect from it what they feel and want, forcing it so that they miss receiving what they need and what God has for all of us.

Is God only concerned with our heart? If so, what does that mean? Well, when you read the Bible, you can see that it has a totally different definition of stewardship than what is popular in the church today!
We are going before the presence of God, and must do so with glad hearts and a wiliness to be together in unity and love.
Too often they have failed to show the beauty of love, the beauty of Christ,the Holiness of God, and the world has turned away.
Is there no way to make the world look again -this time at true Christianity. Most Christians continue to stand with arms folded presenting to men and women, a tarnished image of God- a shattered body of Christ
