I had a chance to go to Rome, where a tour guide talked about how Paul, from the Bible, was hit on the head by a falling rock and had this dream where he saw Jesus. They also talked about how the Bible states that the world is flat and how inaccurate the Bible is.
Neither of these types of thoughts are what the Bible states, but it seems as if people on these tours just soak it up and believe what they are told. While I was on this tour, I emailed these questions to a friend and asked him if he knew about this. His reply was, “Are you in Rome or something?” I laughed out loud. He then explained this kind of thinking goes way back in Rome….
The point I am making is that I have found reading the Bible to be amazing because you find out that all the perceptions of what people think are not from the Bible, but rather what they have heard. If you do not know what I am talking about, read the Bible and you will see what I am talking about.
An example is that people do things or quote things from the Bible without knowing what it actually says. Ideas like the Old Testament does not matter and so on. Also, this stuff even happens in the Bible. Eve in the Garden of Eden told the serpent that God stated you couldn’t touch the fruit. God did not say this.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV)
The key is that your faith is something you have to choose and it requires 100% surrender.
