If that's how you come to your hard and fast opinions -by reading reviews - then I wouldn't listen to anything you said about the bible - friend.
Peace I see one of the comments said we have to "live out" the scripture. I get confused as to what "peace" looks like in a persons life. I've been around those individuals who espoused this, but come to find out they basically had what I considered to be a lacksidasical attitude about responsibilities and life in general. I wouldn't think that's peace from God. So does this peace "look" differently on each individual?
Sanctification I love ink (tatoo's). Since I've become a Christian, I only get biblical scripture or pictures, but have been told I am still just feeding my "fleshly desires". Do you agree with what I've been told?
Great Sermon! the gospel is always one. Only someone who does not know the Gospel would say there are many versions. Evangelicals share the same gospel. The biblical gospel. The only gospel. They may disagree on some things, but the gospel is the same. That's where unity comes from. Knowing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
