The Bible: The Basis Of The Bible

Good Essays
The Bible There are many books considered to be good, great, grand, but no book is as good and profound as The Bible. The Bible is a good book because gives a beautiful description of morals and ethics, set a structure that is translated into modern day government, and makes people realize and live with their own mortality. The Bible makes for a good read, but it also makes you feel good reading it. The basis of The Bible is being a good person, how to treat your friends, family, and the strangers around you.

To truly appreciate the good The Bible creates just look around you, people helping their neighbors, opening their own business, comforting loved ones in their last hours. These behaviors exist because The Bible, the good book, showed them the benefits of being a good person. The Bible, especially to me, will always be the best book, because its more than just stories, it creates a standard framework of moral and ethical behavior, created modern-day government and judicial behavior, and helps give us comfort in our mortality.

    Because we are made in His image, we are supposed to be merciful to others, just like God is (Luke 6:36). God tells us that we will be blessed if we show mercy because then, we will have mercy shown to us (Matthew 5:7). Some people ask, “Why doesn’t God show mercy to the people who suffer?” Well, the Bible invites us into suffering because when we join the sufferings of Christians, we become a good soldier of Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:3). Not just a soldier, but a good soldier. God allows suffering because He loves us.…

    At the end of the passage Jesus states that the reason that those who helped others were his followers is because caring for those who were in need was equivalent to caring for him (Biblegateway, c1995). I take this passage to heart, and for that reason I value my service to others and strive to serve to the best of my ability. My belief in this passage also support the value of social justice because it stresses the importance of reaching out to groups who are commonly marginalized. Rather than ignoring the groups, Jesus demands that his followers step into the lives of these people…
