What the Bible says about:

This page is by no means exhaustive. The idea is to give a few thoughts to get started on how the Scriptures deal with various issues in daily life. The Bible teaches on various levels with examples, symbols and parables as well as direct instructions. By delving into the Word and asking God's spirit to guide your thoughts, one can learn how to live in His world.

The Apostles Creed

    I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
   I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
   I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy church of the believers, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer (Luke 11; Matt.6 )

Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Bible

     What is the Bible all about? How do you read the Bible? Who wrote it? The Bible is made up of some 67 books by many writers who were inspired by and directed to write down God’s revelation to them. One can read consecutively and get an idea of the sequence of History and circumstances under which it was written over a period of around 1500 years. Every scripture is divinely inspired, and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; 2Tim 3:16 Paul encourages us to study The Word to show ourselves approved unto God. A teacher of mine compared it to a fish in water. If one were to ask a fish, “What is water?” it would be hard put to describe it. So we need to be also when we study and live by the God's Word.

     The bible consists of, among other styles of writing, Prophecy, Law, Teaching and History. The Bible is commonly divided into two testaments or covenants: The Old Testament also known as the Hebrew Scriptures – which is the foundation and revelation of God to man through Abraham and to the whole world, the important historical events, poetry, prophecy and teaching- and The New Testament – the account of the culmination of the plan revealed in the Old Testament of God’s salvation of man from his sin, and the spreading of the message of the Jewish Scriptures to the world.

     Apart from the historical, prophetic and poetic styles in the scriptures, a main aspect is teaching on how to live. The scriptures provide instructions for humankind whom God created. It falls to reason that God created man in His image and therefore knows his nature intricately so can best instruct on principles and how to live harmoniously with and in the universe He made.

     Below are some of the scriptures relating to various subjects concerning our lives before God. The scriptures provide specific instructions and principles as well as examples from real life. So we have a standard to which we needs aspire and also a revelation showing how we cannot maintain this standard, hence the plan of salvation. I have dealt with common issues in order to provide the reader with some tools. As a part of these tools I will provide a small outline of the books and authors so as to help the beginner get into The Word. The scriptures are like an orchard one can enter and wander about in. The fruit on the trees are revelations and are there for the picking for those who desire to seek God and His fellowship.

Covenant

      One of the most important aspects of what God has done for us is in the covenent that He has made and the importance of a serious reflection of the promises He has made and the plan that He is following according to His word cannot be overstated. He foreknew the destiny of man, the consequennces of sin and what was required to repair the breach. Therfore we see the covenants with Noah, Abraham and Israel as most important mostly because of two things : That He made them alone and that as often as the partner (mankind) agreed, at each critical point we failed and broke our promises. God showed us His love in that while we were yet sinners and could not save ourselves, Christ died for us. For God so loved the world

Marriage and Family

     Marriage is a covenant and a reflection of God's covenant with His people. This must be kept in mind when reading God's directives for this relationship between wife and husband, the roles of father and mother and children. The story of the patirarchs and their children are ideal examples to start with seeing the roles of each part of this God created entity called the family. With the destruction of the family follows social destruction and ultimately national ruin.

Church leadership

     The picture we have of the church in the New Testament is founded on the structure given to us in the Old Testament. From Genesis we see the structure of the family from which is drawn in Leviticus the structure of the spiritual leadership of Israel and ultimately all of God's people. God laid out the role of the leaders and their responsibilities before God. The priest of the family is the father and likewise the leader of the fellowship under whatever title, is responsible for the guiding and interceeding for his flock. The only major change is that now the role of making sacrifices has been completed - a role made obsolete by the ultimate sacrifice of God's son Jesus Christ. God has not changed and therefore the role of kings and priests has been extended from just the Hebrews to those who have put their faith in God's son those who have been grafted in.
    The church is one body and we need to support each other. God forgives us and we need to forgive and understand each other rather than create conflicts. If we are faithful God will show us our faults and thus we can grow.

Baptism

     Baptism is one of the fundamental sacraments of the Scriptures. Baptism is first a sign of association and identification with the death and resurection of Jesus Christ. We are baptised into his body - the church of all believers. The background of baptism can be traced to Old Testament times - prophets such as Isaiah, Ezekiel, and David likewise used water as an external symbol for internal cleansing (Isa. 1:l6: Ezek. 36:25ff; Ps. 51:2). Even the story of Noah and the flood was a form of baptism in that the world was 'washed' and a new beginning ensued
 John the Baptist was the final prophet of the Old Covenant. As John baptized Jesus in the Jordan, he was ushering in the messianic fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. Behind the symbol of baptism is the substance of baptism, which is the blood of Jesus Christ removing our sinfulness. As water cleanses the outer man from soil and sweat, so the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses the inner man from the stain of sin. It is not through the ritual Baptism that one is saved. Salvation is by faith and the testimony or outward sign of this commitment is baptism. In the old testament we have the ritual washing and dipping in the water not only was this hygenic and but also this was a picture of the spiritual purification required of those who would enter into God's house and service. The priests who profaned the temple and defiled the sacrifices were excomunicated from the congregation. Peter notes that we are a Kingdom of priests and Kings which places us in the presence of God so it is essential to be clean of sin and thus Baptism is a sign of the spiritual cleanliness attained by the washing in the blood of Jesus. As kings and priest we are expected and command to be holy even as God is holy and as such we can be a light to the world but only if we ourselves are pure in heart and can be an example to those who look to us for direction.

Communion

     Communion is also another commandment and sacrament instituted by Jesus. During the feast of Passover part of the meal includes the breaking of bread and sharing a cup of wine. Jesus says to his disciples to continue celebrating the passover because the sacrificial lamb is a symbol of himself and his body is represented in the bread and his blood is represented in the wine.Keeping this in mind we need to study the passover feast and then the life, death and ressurection of Jesus.

Sorcery

God is very clear regarding sorcery and witchcraft - there will be none of it and as Jesus said no man can serve two masters. Dealing with Satan is breaking covenant with God. It is a breach of trust and furthermore more dangerous than any man can stand. In other words it is a giving over of the person to the devil. Therefore there is no place for anything that has to do with cult, evil, sorcery and the like. As we already know God is the same as always and in times past anyone who had anything to do with mediums, diviners was to be destroyed from the congregation of God. The Old testamnet is full of examples and it is clear that the new Testament continues to keep far from anything to do with superstition, sorcery, or witchcraft. The following are scriptures dealing with this issue in some form or other, whether as God's commandment or an example and its consequence.
