The Most Important Book
in the Universe.
THE BIBLE contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you
It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword, and the Christian's charter. Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed.
CHRIST is its grand subject, our good the design and the glory of God its end.
It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.
The Holy Bible is the Authorized King James Version of 1611. The Bible is the best selling book of all time. The King James Bible has served Christians, and unbelievers (as a savour unto death), for almost 400 years and has brought millions to the life saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Satan has attempted to destroy the Bible through the Catholic religion which prohibited possession of it, burned it, and killed multiplied millions that cherished it. According to Dr. Jewell Smith, the King James Bible produced more martyrs than any other Bible. Blood, tears, imprisonment, torture, trial and tribulation went into the holy scriptures. And yet the Bible still stands today, bless God.
Satan has not given up though. Because he cannot destroy it, the devil has inspired his ministers to counterfeit it. They question it, they say that only the unavailable originals are correct, they say that we must know foreign languages in order to understand it, that we must mull over 30,000 extant manuscripts (which we could never touch) to know the truth, and, most deadly, that we must look to the scholarship of man to know what it really says. But what saith the scriptures about man?Let God be true and EVERY man a liar. Romans 3:4
But Jesus did not commit himself unto them...for HE KNEW WHAT WAS IN MAN. John 2:24-25
And yet today, many professing Christians accept entire scripture passages being yanked out of the Bible--simply because a man told them it should be so.Isaiah 9:16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee... Hosea 4:6
Look on the eternal Word and live."Sanctify them through thy truth: THY WORD IS TRUTH." John 17:17
"For ever, O LORD, Thy Word is settled in heaven." Psalm 119:89
"All Scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16
