Today’s thoughts are based on 1 Corinthians 13, which is very much a summary of the Christian philosophy; we pose the question: how can we follow the principles of the chapter in our rapidly changing and confusing world?
The short chapter was written in the 1st century for a very different audience; can it still guide us today, 2000 years later?
Scripture states the Most High rules in the kingdom of men [Daniel4:17] declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done [Isaiah 46:10], so we should expect its pages to reveal detailed foreknowledge of World Events, and this has proven to be the case - for example, Bible students as far back as Joseph Mede [1586-1639] and Sir Isaac Newton [1643-1727] wrote that the rebirth of the nation of Israel was foretold in the writings of the Hebrew prophets.
We believe that the Bible is God’s word, given to us as the key to real happiness, not just now, but for ever. It is the Word of Life: an invitation to everlasting life and citizenship of God’s future Kingdom on this earth.
To understand the Bible’s message and enjoy the benefits, we have to read it for ourselves, so the entire King James Version is built into this website, with a reading plan that works through the Bible in three short portions each day, completing the Old Testament once, and the New Testament twice, each year.
