In reply to THE bible?-need imput plse, posted by crazychickuk on September 3, 2004, at 2:28:02

If you want to read the bible, "The New Revised Standard Version - With Apocrypha" published by Thomas Nelson Publishers is written in very straight forward, understandable language, but keep in mind that there are groups and organizations that have been predicting the end of the world for decades and even centuries. I seem to recall Jehova's witnesses coming to my door 20 years ago saying with great urgency that the end of the world was at hand and pointing to scripture to "prove" it. The world did not end. I feel that they purposely create fear in order to convert people. I choose not to accept any belief system out of fear. I came to my religion out of love and resepct for its principles.
It's true that the world isn't in great shape, environmentally, politically or spiritually. The solutions for me are to be environmentally aware (recycle, conserve gas, reduce consumption...), to be politically aware (try to get at the truth) and work on myself spiritually because I can't change others, but I can change myself.
