Aug. 1 '10 - The Bible by Brother Shelton

Did you ever stop and think about the Bible? It is in just about every home, and hotel room in the world. This book is read and studied by more people all over the world than any other book. The Bible contains proof in itself of its divine origin. No other book can answer the questions of the mind or satisfy the longings of the heart as does the Bible. It is adapted to every age and condition of life and is full of that knowledge which enlightens the mind and sanctifies the soul. It is so easy to get your hands on one that all people of every country need to read and study and pray more than one every day.

The Bible is Gods great text ---book for man. It is His lamp to our feet and light to our path in this world of sin. The value of Bible study cannot therefore be overestimated. Considered from a literary standpoint alone the Bible stands pre-eminent. It’s terse, chaste style, its beautiful and impressive imagery; its interesting stories and well---told narratives; its deep wisdom and its sound logic; its dignified language and its elevated themes, all make it worthy of universal reading and careful study.

As an educating power, the Bible has no equal. Nothing so broadens the vision strengthens the mind, elevates the thoughts and enables the affections as does the study of the sublime and stupendous truths of revelation. A knowledge of its principles is an essential preparation to every calling. To the extent that it is studied and its teachings are received. It gives strength of character, noble ambition, keenness of perception, and sound judgment. Of all the books ever written, none contains lessons so instructive, precepts so pure, or promises so great as the Bible. In the Bible we have a revelation of the living God. Received by faith, it has power to transform the life. During all its history a divine watch—care has been over it, and preserved it for the world. So find one read it and live by it to give you a better life and understanding of it.
With love n God;
Brother Shelton
