This page posted to give my readers a foundation towards understanding how I've framed my thoughts with the Scriptures as THE foundation. Don't expect to take all this in at one time or understand exactly how it works right away. Why? It takes time to "retrain" your brain. But the more you learn these principles and apply them in your personal study the easier it does become. Your goal is to renew your mind, change your thinking to Truth (this is what repentance is), thereby transforming yourself into a child of God pleasing your father and allowing yourself to be in a position that the God that created the heavens and earth may bless you abundantly.
It wouldn't hurt any disciple to memorize these all! There is more to consider when reading/studying scripture but what follows is a great start towards discipline in studying!
God's Word Does Not Contradict Itself
- All apparent contradictions lie in either your understanding or translation -
|Personal Study Makes It Your Own|
The whole effort of TheHolleringStump.com is to make the Truth of God's rightly divided Word available to HIs people. And to offer anyone another way of looking at "The Holy Bible". Not as a book of unknowns, contradictions or just another reference but to show that it is the only reference for Truth for those tired of bumping through life feeling blindfolded. With the observation of this life weighed on the scales of Truth in many of these posts it is my heart that you, a son or daughter of the true God may walk in the greatness of His glory! Manifested in your life! To assist you in you deepening your understanding of the spiritual realities of life. Again, come back to this page and reread it once in a while. If a story hits your heart come back to it again later. Don't just read for entertainment. Read for understanding. And if you'd like to get involved with the ministry that taught me these principles and gave me an environment to grow and develop spiritually in feel free to drop me a line at Dave@TheHolleringStump.com and I'll see what I can do for you.
You've heard the expression, "God works in mysterious ways?" They're only mysterious to those that don't know the Truth of The Word! Just as in a court in the physical realm, ignorance is not going to be any excuse at the judgments of the future when God holds court for those that have refused Him. I sure am glad I won't be standing trial!!! I'll probably be too busy to even observe that whole thing. I plan on being out back somewhere checking out what my new spiritual body can really do!
About the Scriptural Sharing Entries on The Stump
Unless otherwise stated, all scripture reference quoted here is King James Version (KJV). I believe this version should seriously be considered the main text for continuous reading and study. Don't be concerned about the old English used. You will grow accustomed to it. There are many benefits to using the KJV... too many to mention here. But! Here's a coupl'a reasons you may not know! Ever notice italicized words in the KJV? That's so the reader knows the translator added that word. And should be considered void of authority. Chapters, verses and punctuation were added by man. Again... Void of authority. Also. Sometimes clicking on a picture will take you to a verse or section of verses.
