These thoughts can be treated as:
A. A 5 minute read. or….
B. A week long Bible study. or….
C. A 9 week long series of Deep Meditations. …..
When trying to discover the most important truths in the world, from the world’s most important and deeply searching book in the world. It is easy to understand why some people just throw their hands in the air and either don’t try or give up.
My answers are a result of a lifetime of search, research, study and deeply prayerful and reverent seeking. So how can I dare to give you clear, plain, pat answers? I guess I feel like I am supposed to. That maybe that’s why I have been driven to search so intensely throughout the course of my life.
So humbly I offer these 8 key truths as un-mistakeable and critical truths that you should know from the Christian Scriptures. I suggest the following. Firstly, read and study each scripture for one day of the week. Do 7 & 8 on the same concluding day. Then take one whole week with each truth and do your own study. Yes, that is 8 additional weeks. Making this a 9 week study if you do it like I suggest.

He leads me beside the still waters.

For His name’s sake.

I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

All the days of my life;
