Over the years I have been accused of being a literalist when it comes to the bible, and I am okay with that. I would rather take the bible for what it says and believe it then try to make it into something that fits my culture, or my political persuasion, or even try to make it fit into my family and business. I don’t see where the bible says we can take the scriptures and bend them into our way of thinking but rather, we are to conform ourselves to what it is saying, and make the appropriate and necessary changes.
There are those who even within the church try to make it say what it is not saying to be culturally correct, rather than walking in the same faith that Abraham and so many others did not knowing where they were going but trusting God along the way anyway.
One of the biblical truths that I hold onto today is that God still heals. I know that there are many who disagree with me, but in reality their arguments and perspectives are just too little too late. Let me explain.
