The Bible

This writing about the Bible was written in a very beautiful, old Bible that someone gave to our family. It was written in 1916. It was in handwriting that was quite hard to read, so there is a section taken out... But it was beautifully written and I felt led to share with you all. May the  Love of our Lord overflow your hearts and minds in Christ. Much love to you all!

The Bible

This book contains the mind of God, the state of men, the way of Salvation, Son of Sinners and happiness of believers,
Its Doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.
Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy,
It contains light to direct you, food to support you, to comfort and cheer you.
It is the travelers map, the pilgrims staff, and pilots compass, the soldiers sword, and the Christians charter.
Here Paradise is restored, ... (unreadable section)
Christ is its grand Spirit, its our good life designs, and the glory of God its end.
It should will your memories, rule your hearts, and guide your feet.
Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully.
It's a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory and a river of pleasure.
It is given you in life, will be opened at the Judgement and be remembered forever.
It involved the highest risk and impossibility,
Swords the greatest labor, and condemns all who trifle with its contents.
...Beware
