The Uncomfortable Bible

So often when we turn to the Bible we find comfort and strength for the day ahead. But it is not only a book of guidance and light. God’s word is often ‘sharper than any double-edged sword, dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow.’ Some Bible passages are uncomfortable to us today. Mass destruction and sex scandals are not welcome reading.

Our church is tackling some of these issues in a series of sermons. I await the next few sermons with interest. Reading of the Bible requires one hand on the Bible and the other in the hand of God.
