What I Like About the Bible

What I like about the Bible

  1. Its length. I don’t think God could have explained the universe and the story of salvation of humans in 30 pages or even 200 pages. He needed roughly 1,000 pages (the Bible in English.)
  2. Its simple yet poetic use of words.
  3. Its pinpoint prophecies. Like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, we Seventh-day Adventists teach that God had predicted in the Bible the fall of Babylon and even given the name of its conqueror hundreds of years before it happened. This means that, hundreds of years before Cyrus was born, God predicted he would conquer Babylon.
  4. Why it’s not a book only for the Jews or the Gentiles, a book not only for the people in Ancient times or for the modern people but a book for everyone. I think the Gentiles could greatly benefit from reading the Old Testament and using verses from it to support claims. On the other hand, the Jews could learn a lot from reading the New Testament and accepting the Christians’ use of the Old Testament.
  5. My two favorite books of the Bible are Proverbs and Matthew for their poetic nature.

I write so my words and story can last longer than me. My name is Debrezion; I’m also known as Derezion, Dee or Azen. I always know where I’m at by what people call me. I enjoy church, using computers, and of course writing. I’ve been to Ethiopia twice. I was reared in California, USA but my parents are from Ethiopia. I’m lucky to be alive and I should thank God for that.
