whats your favortie verse in the bible && why
"Women should be silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak, but should be submissive, as the law also says." (1 Corinthians 14:34)
"Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her as a covering." (1 Corinthians 11:13-15)
"If any man takes a wife, and goes in on her, and detests her, and charges her with shameful conduct, and brings a bad name on her, and says, 'I took this woman, and when I came to her I found she was not a virgin..." (Deuteronomy 22:13,14) "But if ... evidences of virginity are not found for the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones..." (Deuteronomy 22:20,21)
"If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched." (Mark 9:43)
"Slaves, obey your human masters with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ." (Ephesians 6:5) "Slaves, obey your human masters in everything; don't work only while being watched, in order to please men, but work wholeheartedly, fearing the Lord." (Colassians 3:22) "Slaves are to be submissive to their masters in everything, and to be well-pleasing, not talking back ." (Titus 2:9) "Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the cruel. " (1 Peter 2:18)
And my favorite. "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.". Exodus 22:18
I like these caused they are ignored by Christians in favor of the feel good ones. It exposes the ugly side of it.
Me, John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life - it tells me just how much God loves us - to give us a gift of His Son to enable us to live in eternity with Him - I'm amazed, He didn't have to...could have let us just perish - I'm so very Thankful.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that who so ever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life - it tells me just how much God loves us - to give us a gift of His Son to enable us to live in eternity with Him - I'm amazed, He didn't have to...could have let us just perish - I'm so very Thankful.
John 3:16&17,I read that because I will never forget that Christ died for me and when I do something wrong I know that he died because he loved me and that he still loves me.
acts2 38 and jerimaiah 2911 for I know the thoughts that I think toward you says the lord thougts of good and not of evil to give you a future and a hope
Isaiah 41:10 I read that everytime I get depressed or afraid. it reminds me that I always have a close friend nearby. I haven't memorized it, though.
I can't say that I have one favorite... but one I really like is the shortest one in the bible... "Jesus wept"... because even the son of God cries...
John 3:16... and it has already been quoted twice... so I won't waste the space on this question. :-)
