The scripture says that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. It was asked "Why doesn't everyone that read the scripture have faith? Because the scripture doesn't produce faith. The word of God does." This idea has begun a transformation in my thinking concerning the scriptuture. Jesus said "Search the scripture and in them ye think ye have eternal life..." Eternal life is not a product of the scripture but of the word of God. Jesus said again "...the words that I speak unto you they are spirit and they are life." Our words, based on the scripture, are to be used to give life to others. Not to bite and devour one another. May our speech be alway with grace seasoned with salt.
