I've had my own personal struggles with this issue over the past couple years.
I was always taught that we should interpret the Bible "literally"... meaning; "If the literal makes good sense, then seek no other sense".
The problem I had in being able to understand scripture using that model of interpretation was; there were too many things that DIDN'T make sense.... Mainly being, that "rule" isn't followed in a consistent manner.
Philippians 1:6 I am confident that HE who began good work in me will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Philippians 4:7 The peace of God guards my heart and mind.
Philippians 4:19 God shall supply all my needs according to HIS riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
These are some of the things God says about us.Alleluia

HI there guys. This post is for young people but yet for old people alike. Nowhere in any walk of life, in any job in and any amount of safety precautions is anyone safe from death. Now, I say this is for young people because I am one of them. Young people of this generation and not excluding all the generations before are exceedingly proud. We are proud of being different from our parents, proud of our physique, proud of ourselves. So more care is to be taken while in adolescent than any other
I updated my blogspot...take a read!
I arrive with plenty of time: 40 minutes before the crowds. I flex my fingers and make my way through the masses of flowers and potted plants all herded in the front of the room. Little cards flag out from the plants calling for recognition and offering thoughts and comments. Admiring the casket, I walk by, checking to see how Ethyl looked lying there in state, so to speak.
Not bad. She's got a fresh perm and it looks like her silver locks have been freshened with the best of dyes.
