All Scriptures have their purpose

By Leonard Lauriault: QCS Religion Columnist This year, I’m reading the Daily Bible (Harvest House Publishers, Eugene, OR 1984), which places events and writings in chronological order and is divided into 365 daily readings.

Bible changes lives, guides action

Debra Whittington All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
