To all be blessed!

With unsteady fingers and a gripping fear that I may tread on some toes I write on this topic.

First I would do good to get a interpetation and then focus my comments within those bounds.

In the vast arena of knowledge one can easily make an error in ones interpretation of the actual events that prompted the words that God has spoken, which is the Bible.

Are their oher translations that include and some exclue what is truly a complete revelation of God's purpose.

A discovery of common thread/s in all text I believe in all the world religions may help to solidify the purpose that we must all undertake.

Can we do this without controversy?

Can someone direct me to a exact,excepted interpretation of the Torah spoken to the Israelites from Moses?

Stanley, Perhaps I do not


Perhaps I do not understand exactly what your intent is in starting this thread. But it would seem to me that you have more than you can possibly digest in a lifetime in the Bible you hold in your hands.

Jesus said, "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." John 7:17 (KJV) And again, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31-32 (KJV)

And so it is that if we search the Bible so that we might do the will of God the Holy Spirit will open to our understanding the hidden things not revealed to carnal minds. God can reveal His will to us in nature. Yet, because we are so deaf and blind we have trouble seeing truth when it is plainly written down for us.

It is possible to be ever learning yet never coming to a knowledge of the truth. My advice would be to do that which God has already made plain to your understanding and then He will give you more. Put it into practice. I see that as being more pertinent to what appears to be your quest than more books. What do you think?

    And further, by these, my son, be admonished:
    of making many books there is no end;
    and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

    Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
    Fear God, and keep his commandments:
    for this is the whole duty of man.

    Eccl 12:12-13 (KJV)

"Where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them." Viola! Church!
(Matt 18:20 (KJV))
