Hey Guys and Gals, it was pointed out to me that the “resources for growing Christians” were a little out of date. So, now I bring you: WEBSITE OF THE MONTH!!! (yay!). Each month I will hunt down a good quality Christian Website that is useful, informative, encouraging or maybe just funny. So here it goes:
WEBSITE OF THE MONTH!!!
So, you’re looking for a particular verse? Wanting to find out how it’s translated in over 50 versions of the Bible? Looking for a clear, Biblical Explanation of a particular passage? Well, here’s a great place to look: www.biblegateway.com I’ve personally used this website countless times, to help prepare for Bible Studies, to help understand passages that I just did get when I first heard it, or to find an obscure verse that I heard mid-sermon and forgot to note down.
For example: I want to find that passage in the King James Version that uses the word “Stinketh” I simply type it into the search bar, select King James Version from the drop bar menu, and click “search the Bible”. And vuala! John 11:39 “Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.” and we also find out that there is a passage in Isaiah that uses it too regarding fish that dieth for thirst.
So, as you can see, this is a valuable, yet invaluable source for any Christian. A great way to search through the Bible and discover God’s word.
So, until next time, keep reading.
