What I’ve learned in my trek through the Bible in 30 days

I started this year with an ambitious goal. Maybe not ambitious to you or anyone you know, but one that I’ve never done before, so a goal of new territory for me.

My pursuit this year is one of intentional direction and seeking what God has next. I felt the best way to do that would be a super fast trek through his word, and so began my quest through the Bible in 30 days. I’ll end up a few days late because, you know, life happens.

Recently, I’ve seen a few stories of people who have abandoned their faith because of problems with the Old Testament. They say that they cannot trust a God who would go to such lengths to destroy rather than forgive and who seemed to be more about rules than relationship.
They are speaking through their ignorance and lack of first hand investigated effort. They see this through their perception rather than through their knowledge of investigated effort.

The Worldwide Famine

There’s a Worldwide famine taking place today.

It’s the largest famine the world has ever seen affecting literally billions of people. Every day more and more face their final starving moment and succumb to the numbing pains of starvation, and then they go make a sandwich and move on with their lives.
