pick up a book and read it. We have so many other things that we would like to
do besides read a book. Even college students would rather watch a movie
version of a book they have been assigned to read. It just seems to be much easier and quicker.
Reading the Bible is one of the hardest things to do if you don't set your mind to it. We can read a love or mystery novel all day, but can hardly keep our eyes open
when it is time to read the Bible. The truth is, if you don't take the time to read the Bible for yourself then you could easily believe someone else's version of what
they think the Bible says.
You have got to seek and know the truth. Don't just listen to what the world says. People have been mislead from the truth because they don't want to take the time
to just read the truth. If you don't equip yourself with the truth, then you will fall for anything.
Who came to the conclusion that the fruit that Adam and Eve ate in Genesis 3:6 was an apple? The Bible clearly says "fruit" and that's it. What about the three wise men? We assume that there were three wise men because of the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh that were given. There could have been 12 wise men that brought one of each gift. The words "wise men" are mentioned two different times throughout Matthew 2:1-12, but never clearly says three wise men. What does a rabbit , eggs, and Santa Claus have to do with the acknowledgement of Jesus Christ?
Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.
There are people in the world with major influence that are capturing the heart
and mind of people that love to watch them. They can have an influence on what people believe in, because of their popularity. Those that watch them will
start to question themselves and their own beliefs instead of standing on God's word. Let's all start to read our Bible more than we do so that we will not fall for anything that we see or hear.
