Now that I am seeing God through a new lens. This new lens has made it easier for me to read the Bible again. With this newfound perspective on faith and spirituality, I sat down and reflected on how God and the Bible appears to me. This lead me to list what I now hold to be true about the Bible, my faith in God and my spirituality.
From childhood, I was taught the principles of Christianity and I firmly believed them. As I was told to do, I always studied to show myself approved (2 Timothy 2:15). So, as a teen I spent many weekends curled up in bed with notebooks, pens, highlighters, a study Bible and concordance. Yes, my personal Bible study was intense! I was desperate to know more about God. I had questions that needed to be answered, so I scoured the scriptures for them. I needed to know more about God? His plans for this world? His plans for my life? What is the purpose of life?
