Default Re: The Bible

If you read a written work it will have an effect on you in the region of thought, feeling and will. Being aware that a work can affect you would be the first observation.

The bible, likewise, will do the same, and with this in mind you will obtain the effects of the written word.

Interpretations usually lead to a dogmatic approach to this "living bible". If you see a sculpture of Michaelangelo or a painting by Raphael the effect will be apparent but not necessarily intellectually cognate. See it as a work of art, read, and go on with your life.

This work will certainly enrich your life but be careful to treat it like a book which "tells you" what to do. Treat it like a drink of water, you may not know how the water does it's work, but it certainly will.
