I am a christian. And for a number of a not-so-long years, I've learned to find the significance of the word in my life, helping me to live my life to the fullest. Of course, I'm not pertaining to external fullness but rather the fullness of life. Excelling in my job and a lot, lot more things to do, I've learned to dedicate them all to God BECAUSE God has caused me to plunged deeper into his Word, the bible. What do you think about this?

Maybe some Christians fail to recognize the value of the bible in their lives because they are at the moment living an easy life with less trouble or anxiety. That's the usual tendency for human beings; if they are quite comfortable in their life situations, they somehow forget about the Creator who give them such comfort. But if the situation reverses, that's the time that we'll learn the value of the Words of God. I strongly believe in the quote by Carl S. Lewis: "God whispers in our pleasures but shouts in our pains. Pain is His megaphone to rouse a dulled world." Happy posting!

Well, for me I fail to recognize the value of church...I believe soley in the word of God. Church for me is something that moves me backwards. The gossiping, the hypocrisy (sp?) etc. I believe that you need to know what God wants from you before you can begin to please him, and the bible is the place to start for sure!!

Perhaps true. The church at times commit things it is nor supposed to do. This might be a general disease but some churches has finally freed themselves from this chain.
