Fascinating Bible Facts #OldBookyetpowerful

By April 14, 2016Uncategorized

I once had a conversation with an #atheist on twitter.  Along the line,  I quoted some verses of the bible when literal words couldn’t convey the weight of what I needed him to understand about the existence of God.  He screamed at me, ‘stop those incantations…’. I wonder what effect they had on him.  Anyway, the word of God ended the argument.
1Peter3:15 says ” be ready to give an answer to every man that asketh you the reason of the hope that is in you

I’ve got scripture for every matter under the sun…lol… I’m #BibleBeryl…many thanks to God, #YouVersion and Google. Infact, someone says all answers can be gotten from two sources,  God and Google… lol.

God is synonymous with His word.  So old,  yet so relevant for tomorrow and eternity. The Word of God,  the Bible remains the most powerful book on earth. A bestseller,  life Transforming  super book for super living here and beyond this planet.  Here are some very INTERESTING FACTS about it I stumbled on this week. Enjoy!
