“For the word of God is living
and active. Sharper than any
double-edged sword, it
penetrates even to dividing soul
spirit, joints and marrow; it
judges the thoughts and attitudes
of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12
The Bible is different than any
other book you may read because it
contains life. You don’t have to
understand it, any more than
you have to understand nuclear
