About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      "Curse God and Die." is in the Bible.

      Wednesday, September 10, 2008

      A text out of context becomes a pretext leading to ridiculous interpretation. Many people use the Bible as if it is a fortune cookie - when you crack it open, it tells you something you should do no matter what the context is. If we were to open the Bible looking for some kind of instant-instruction, and take the verse in the title of this post (Job 2:9) out of context, we would be influenced to do what the text says, "Curse God and die." When we read the verse in context, though, we realize that it is actually a quote that Job's wife made to him when things started not to go favorably (in human terms) for him, and afterward he rebukes her. The following video expounds on the importance of reading the Bible, and everything for that matter, in the context of which it is written.

      Search the Bible for "there is no God" and "Christ died for no purpose"
