The Bible: Most Useful Instructional Manual for Living Life

open book

Many look at the Bible as a book of rules; rules which are to be checked out, tested and evaluated.

How tragic!

Because God’s Word is actually an instructional manual: full of information on how to successfully live one’s life.

The Bible is actually a how-to instructional manual for such things as vanquishing fear and unrest; obtaining peace in one’s life (which will lead to a most relaxed and restful sleep); guidance in times of trouble; and, HUNDREDS of other instructions for living this life we now live in a highly successful manner.

The information contained in the Bible is not there to restrict and hamper the reader.

The information contained in the Bible is to warn the reader of pitfalls and snares; to caution the reader to avoid those behaviors which will bring all who engage in them woe and calamity–either immediately or in the future.

It is easy to see why the world views God’s Word as a series of fun-killing rules: the world does not understand God’s Word.  It does not have the spiritual key and so it pieces together various bits and guesses and speculation, so as to make what IT THINKS the Bible is saying.

Which is most usually always wrong.

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

This does not mean that the non-believer can get no benefit from studying the Word of God.

The non-believer CAN get a benefit from the Word of God.   As an idol-worshiping pagan acquaintance once confided, “I read Psalms whenever I’m upset. They calm me down.”

However, the non-believer only can get a very limited benefit from the Bible.  IF the non-believer knew all of which he was missing out, it is suspected that more non-believers would pursue the kingdom of heaven.

God’s Word is the best instructional manual EVER put together.

This recommendation comes from someone who spent most of his life looking at the Bible as a fun-killing book of rules.

DOES the reader consult the Bible for instructions on dealing with any number of everyday troubles and annoyances?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
