Some of us have a deep, intimate, relationship with the bible. We study extensively the chronology, history and validity of the people, and places mentioned within its pages. We become experts in biblical vernacular, scriptural location, and apocryphal and canonical aspects of the different writings, religions and beliefs. We perform this action for many years of our lives, some of us becoming respected theological scholars and provided degrees of high stature to signify our mastery… and that’s it.
Some of us seek a deep, intimate relationship with God; even though our theological education may be almost non-existent to the rest of the world and we can barely remember what the Word of God says, yet prove what IT DOES IN US AND FOR US through our actions and treatment of others, we get all we need, when we need it.
(Matthew ch.6: v.33, Luke ch.12:vs.32-32)
