The Bible Says It, and I Believe It!

The Bible

The Bible

I’ve written a new article on Christian Beliefs that the Bible Does Teach. It is a companion piece to my previous article, “Christian Beliefs” that the Bible Doesn’t Teach.

This new article is meant to show that the basic beliefs behind the articles here on Spiritual Insights for Everyday Life are solidly based on the Bible.

But more than that, the purpose of the article is to provide some simple, practical, Bible-based beliefs for anyone who wants to live a truly Christian life.

Here is a quote from the first part of the new article:

The Bible is far more concerned with how we live our life than with what we believe. The Bible is a practical book, not an abstract theological treatise.

Still, the Bible does provide us with a foundation of basic beliefs that we can trust and use as guides for everyday life.

Here are some Christian beliefs that the Bible does teach:

  1.       There is one God, and Jesus Christ is that God
  2.       Believing in Jesus Christ leads to salvation
  3.       We must not do evil and destructive things
  4.       We must do things that are good and right
  5.       We must recognize that the power to do these things comes from God

Let’s take a quick look at each of these Christian beliefs, and what the Bible has to say about them.

These five points are adapted from a statement of basic Christian beliefs found in True Christianity #3, written by Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772).

Any time you want to refer to this article, you will find it linked prominently near the top of the right column on Spiritual Insights for Everyday Life, along with its companion piece.
