Welcome to K.I.S.S.I.T.! My name is Billy Lonas, and this is my first blog of many to come … “Is God Real?”… is the question I want to delve into today.
I want to thank you for visiting my blog and hope you will find it interesting. I promise to do what K.I.S.S.I.T. stands for—keeping it scripturally simple in truth. I will be using the bible to explain every topic we discuss here. I will use a bible I have had for forty-two years, The New World Translation. Poor thing is so marked up, I think more than half of it is underlined.
Many people will say to me: “Well, the bible was written by men and there are so many different versions that it can’t be the word of God.” I can’t deny any of that. But if there is a God, would He not have made sure the message always held true no matter what translation people use?
Let me explain. I see a sentence as a sandwich. The breads are the words, but the meaning contained within the words is the meat. So the different translations are just different types of bread. But if there is a God, the message or the meat between the bread will always be the same. As I quote from my bible, go check to see what your bible says, I think that you will agree, they mean the same thing. Here we go, sit back and enjoy.
