Re: What do (or don't) you believe in the Bible?
The children of Israel wandered for 40 years because of unbelief. In the same way, it took over 40 years for God to get me to a point where I could have been 25 years ago. This was because of my own spiritual failures. When God brought the people out of Egypt, they werent ready to possess the land. He needed to teach them to trust Him, and that "...man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God". Then when the time came to possess the Land, they staggered in unbelief, so the whole faithless generation had to die as wanderers, ( except for Joshua and Caleb), and the children were the ones who got to enter.

God is doing wonders all the time, most just don't see it, or choose not to. I'm not saying this about you, just people in general.
1 John 1:7- But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
2 Corinthians 7:1- Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
