The Bible is divine in origin from God the
Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, always
up-to-date as LORD God is more modern
than modern {How can anyone be out of date
that knows the future before it happens,
Created all this universe with its many
intricacies at the atomic and astronomical size
and beauties beyond description, sees all,
knows all, and is all powerful--you athetists,
agnostics, DOMers, and unbelieving sceptics
can criticize only when you really are superior
to all that, not when you know just a puny
amount of all the books in the world which the
knowledge of God exceeds}; the Bible is
absolute in authority, many so called
Christians still do not get that connection that
when the Supreme and Modern Author of the
Bible with knowledge of all science, radar, and
computers just to name a few {See "Your God
is too Small by J. B. Phillips} , God the Father
through the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy
Spirit with the ASPI translation of the Word of
God, the subject and interpretaion is beyond
debate {II Peter 1:20,21); sufficient in
message for all guidance and questions of
faith and life, and if you do not experience that
wisdom and knowledge daily, along with
prayer,you are missing out on the Christian
View of Life and Living; the Bibe is high fidelity
in communication {boy, does it communicate};
the Bible is dynamic and alive, with time in It
more and more jumping off the page to come
out and get you; the Bible is self-interpretative
according to the Authorized Semi-Public
Interpretation {ASPI} of the Bible as clearly
declared in II Peter 1:20,21; self-explanatory,
setting down in the rules {hermeneutics} of the
Bible how to understand the One God One
Authorized interpretation; like interlacing rebar
in a gigantic door of concrete, God
foreorained a structure built around quotes in
the NT from the OT during the over 4,000
years of writing from over 40 Apostles and
Prophets, the quotes in the NT being not only
a divinely ordained and chosen selection of
top and best quotes from the OT but also
accompanied with the proper explanation and
implementation {like someone in Latin
America responsed "That is some book"}.

The primary gist of the Bible is Christ the
Messiah and salvation for eternal fellowship
with God the Father and for His glory.  The
following portion of the Scriptures best
summarizes that gist with the conclusion "that
God may be all in all."

"Then cometh the end, when he shall have
delivered up the kingdom to God, even the
Father; when
he shall have put down all rule and all authority
and power.  For he must reign, till he hath put
all enemies under his feet.  The last enemy
that shall be destroyed is death.  For he hath
put all things under his feet. But when he saith
all things are put under him, it is manifest that
he is excepted, which did put all things under
him.  And when all things shall be subdued
unto him, then shall the Son also himself be
subject unto him that put all things under him,
that God may be all in all."  (I Corinthians
