okay, i may be stepping out of my realm a little here but i really liked Dave_G's post "what does this verse mean to you?".
i feel the bible is part history with hidden spiritual enlightenment. translated so many times that the original meaning may have been lost due to word definitions in that certain time period.
i think it would be good times to post some more verses and together we try to collaborate on what the meanings could be. this thread my be a little opinion based since the authors have long gone but i would love to share each others ideas and explore the bible in a constructive fashion.
May God bless us and give us the words to express our ideas in a creative and civil manner, while providing us an ear that we may truly hear each other, and a voice to clearly project our thoughts.
