The Bible was made/ written for all sincere, honest, God-loving people, and surprisingly, you do NOT have to be some special, "Bible College" scholar to understand it !! I went thru all these emotions one time in my life too, having trouble understanding the most pure King James Version Bible, written in 1611, and sadly too many pastors refused to help me! Shame on them!! I forgot how I stumbled upon that GREAT, FINE, DEFINED KJV Bible [see: biblefortoeday.org]. This was the best thing since 'sliced bread !' And you don't have to shell out lots of money, although I much prefer a nice, leather bound, flexible, large print, easy on the eyes rendition of that grand Book. Hey! I quit smoking those expensive, deadly cigarettes in 1972, and never looked back, and I don't drink much anymore. Smile ! The Holy Spirit can aid you in doing anything ! ! ! And if you "fall down" -- just get up and keep trying until you succeed, but give God the glory.
Now, a good, easy way [touch stone-- litmus test] to determine if a "holy book" is the right way to go, is to make sure that there is NO demonism or demon worship in that book. The only Book that is free from all demonic teaching/ activity, is the Holy Bible of God Almighty, all and only, 66 books, from Genesis to Revelation ! You can get a copy with any known language under the sun! Just type something in the "DIALOGUE BOX" up on your PC... PERSONAL COMPUTER. Go for it. Like: Where to buy a new KJV Bible. Bang! Hit "Enter." And, if the church you are attending doesn't have bibles available in the seats, pews, or library for people to borrow, or you never see most of the people there carrying their OWN COPIES OF THE BIBLE in plain sight --- RUN FROM THAT CHURCH!! It's not the same if a church displays bible scripts on a machine-- on a wall or projection slide deal. 'When you don't use a muscle -- you lose it, and you get out of shape and rusty !! It's the same when you don't dig into your bible for a while... you get slow and your fingers don't work so good... lol.
But, now, to the subject at hand, Obama and other wimps and liars are just blowing smoke in your eyes, by saying Islam is a religion of PEACE. Their holy book promotes violence, and women are always 2nd class people, born to serve the men. Most of the violence in the world is because of Islam, and most of the terrorists. Yet, the 'occupant in the WH' only gives weak lip service to this problem.
In my humble, but studied opinion, I think that Islam will continue to hurt and punish the West... until Israel is forced to push back and hurt Islam, big time. I know, it sounds ridicules that such a small country the size of Israel could and would do something that big, that great, but God has always used the "foolish things" to work His miracles and great feats ! It is written ! And all bible smart Christian Believers believe that the Rapture could come now at any time. Everything is linked together in close proximity. So, Prepping is only for the short deal between the span of time: NOW, to the Rapture. And we don't really care what happens after the Rapture, because we will have no control of things, once we are in that "Safe Place" --called Heaven ! Our main PRIORITY WORK now, is to preach, share and spread the Gospel !! If you really, truly 'LOVE' people, friends, offspring, relatives, etc.... share the Gospel with them TODAY ! ! ! It's the only game in town.
