Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.

The Purpose of the Bible

The whole purpose of the Bible, it seems to me, is to convince people to set the written word down in order to become living words in the world for God’s sake. For me, this willing conversion of ink back to blood is the full substance of faith.

    The only purpose for the bible is to keep one self on the narrow path. It is not to judge others. Not people or other denominations of the Christian church. What we believe God has made clear to us as individuals. One on one. Me and God, and you and God.

    The only purpose of the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament is to ponder the substance of God and our relationship to the Creator. If we do that well, we will have less time to judge one another.
