Personally, I think I'm very much like Peter--a little bit of a hot head who means well. Loves the Lord very much but, on occasion, leaps before he thinks. How 'bout you?

I think i would like to be like David, though he sinned he asked god's forgiveness. But i dont think iam like David, anyway David's character impresses me a lot.

He was pretty darn awesome! I always thought of him as humble yet brazen, strong, brave, loyal and very loving. Of course, he was also a rebel with a soft heart and a great musician.

I know this is awful but I do not recall much of the Bible. I do not recall all of the names either. I'm not sure who I am like. I have a hard time comprehending the Bible alot of times.

May I suggest getting a copy of the Bible called "The Message" by Eugene H. Peterson. This version uses every day English (the way we talk today). Here, let me give you an example of John 3:16. You know that verse right? It's the "for God so loved the world . . . " text. The Message: "This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again." Anyhow, it will help you comprehend the Bible a little better. You know, just in case you might want to try it again.

Hi Lakota, you should check out the story of Jonathan (King David's best bud) or Joshua . . . these two guys were like the John Waynes of Biblical times. Pretty awesome stuff, my friend.

Most admirable. Yes indeed, very hard footsteps to follow but do-able. Um, not for me, of course.

I don't know. I guess I should study biblical characters more. I think I see really good traits (though often among bad ones) in those in the Bible, and I don't see any of those good traits in myself. Maybe like Timothy? Looked down upon by some because he is younger than most, but still trying really hard with the help of great leaders like Paul.

Timothy was awesome. And yes, you're right he did have a great mentor in Paul who actually told him not to let his youth keep him from great accomplishments. Dig deeper (or maybe not that deep), my friend, and you will see that you do have good traits.

I could be Judas, who thinks too much and is misunderstood by simple folk. Cheers!!!

I'll go with the fact that he thinks too much . . . wait . . . are you sure. He might have been one who didn't think at all. Was he misunderstood? Awww, I don't know. He seemed like one who could be bought for any price. Ah, the darker side of things.

Good discussion, gtargirl. I don't have an answer at the moment. Just wanted to drop in to say hi and wish you a great new year. I'll return with an answer later.

Myself i would prefer Elijah, you know this very confident man who entirely relies on God's providence and is strong hearted and couragoues that he mascarres over 180 of Baal prophets alone. He is magical.

Yeah, and wasn't he the one who was able to call/strike down fire from heaven? Or was that Elisha?

I've always been a bit partial towards the apostle John.. Like you, I'm probably more like Peter, but would like to be more like John! (the apostle of love)
