    1. Dear Regina, thank you so much for your comment. Currently we are on the mission trip overseas.

      God is never confused nor contradict AND He allow finite human beings to interpret His Words privately, which has brought both goodness and chaos (various erroneous/questionable teachings and interpretations) as we observe in our evagelical world today. I am crying out to God to help me understand/interpretat Bible correctly! May God help us. Kinuko

  2. Bible is precious gift from God to let us know about Him and His truth.Only by holy spirit-life of Christ in us,we can take what He want us to take from His words correctly,I think.

    We are on faith journey seeking truth still.May God's will be done to all of us,and His churches.

    Dear Kinuko,please take care and thank you for sharing!

    Sanae

    1. Dear Sanae, thank you for your comment. It is always joyful to read your response!Yes, you are right that without the Holy Spirit of Christ in us, we cannot understand nor take His Words correctly.
      And the difficulty is, to me, that there are countless Spirit-filled Christians out there who take the same verse differently and interpret differently and each claim that their interpretation is of the Lord. Honestly, I am confused and at the loss about this issue but believe that in His time, He will help me to understand Him and His words better:) May God bless you, Sanae. from Kinuko

  3. All of us christians on the earth are travellers seeking His truth.I also know that many devoted believers have different interpretation which they believe as truth.I think these interpretation as sharing of their personal faith journey with God.

    Off course I believe firmly that Bible is written God's words,permanent truth.

    We need to read bible,and learning can be helpful for us.But I hope always that God leads me where I should be also in Bible interpretation.
    May God bless you,too and welcome back,Kinuko!

    Sanae
