version 29 jan 2011
Hi, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to this site.
It’s dedicated to my [our] Father, and to Jesus who generously shares everything – “I [Jesus] have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you”.
John 17:10 All I have is yours, . . .
Luke 15:31 ‘My son, . . .you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.
John 3:16 . . . he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
(If only this would really, fully, blindingly sink into my dull brain !)
I’m devoting time on this Bible project as i am able. The project began late 2003.
The first site in the project was (and still is) forsure-bible-study.com It got to the stage where it needed a new look, and additionally, as the number of pages increased, it seemed to get overcrowded.
So we continued into the site bible-study.4scty.com . That would have been about November 2007. The plan was that some visitors would “spill over” from 4scty.com into the subdomain ‘bible-study’. The actual result was less than startling.
I have created this new site biblefamilylife.com . It’s name is more straightforward. Some things which are outstanding from bible-study.4scty will possibly be completed there, but the main writing from now on will be here in this site.
The intention is that all three sites will stay live.
As regards the domain name, the “bible” is the foundation, it’s the Word.
“family” covers physical human families and, more importantly, the Family of God.
“life” represents eternal life, which is God’s desire for us.
At this time i prefer to remain anonymous. It’s purely a question of time, which is governed by economics.
I would like to have the contact of others, for “in the multitude of counsellors there is safety”, but my prime objective at this time is to get things down on paper. Maybe in the future the site will become more social.
I don’t know anyone who has worked out the meaning of the Bible by himself, there’s just so much to learn, and it’s all got to fit together otherwise you end up with confusion and mistakes – sometimes tragedy. The Inquisition believed they were serving God.
I realise there will be men who don’t need my help, but i would be very happy to one day discover that i have assisted some. It would be great if you turned out to be one of them.
I hope you come back. There’s nothing to pay, no one-time offers, the site will still be live tomorrow God willing, and you don’t have to join anything.
29 jan 2011 That said, whenever i come across a book which i believe is beneficial to you i will recommend it (it will not be to my financial advantage though).
There’s no harm in taking a personal copy of everything on this site just in case.
