I myself regard religion as a wonderful thing, yet do not take it to the fullest extent. I believe I know where I stand on my connection with God, but as anything, nothing is ever finished, so my search in faith forever continues. I respect everyone and their decisions on how to live life, and never force anything upon anyone. I don’t always agree with everything stated in the stereotypical Christian community, but i do consider myself a Christian. I believe that the wonderful thing with religion is the endless interpretations from which it can produce. From that, no restrictions are dealt, following interests and such as long as the golden rule is followed.
Now that that is out of the way, I’d like to share a passage from the Bible which I found interesting. The passage, Job 26 2-14, speaks of the immense power that God holds. The description and meaning of this passage to myself are what makes this special to me.
2 “How you have helped the powerless! How you have saved the arm that is feeble!3 What advice you have offered to one without wisdom! And what great insight you have displayed!4 Who has helped you utter these words? And whose spirit spoke from your mouth?5 “The dead are in deep anguish, those beneath the waters and all that live in them.6 Death is naked before God; Destruction lies uncovered.7 He spreads out the northern [skies] over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.8 He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.9 He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it.10 He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness.11 The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke.12 By his power he churned up the sea; by his wisdom he cut Rahab to pieces.13 By his breath the skies became fair; his hand pierced the gliding serpent.14 And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”
