Bible Translators!

Well, if I ask you how is your bible translating work going on, what would be your response?  You may say you never participated in any bible translators work.

But the truth is we are all bible translators in one sense.

I believe the best translation of the Bible is not NIV, NRSV, NLT... No, the best translation is the life that puts The Bible into daily practice.

Well, now.. How is your bible translating going on? How close do you resemble Jesus?

I think I need refocus on my bible translating Job...

Church, Where Brotherly Love Abounds!

 Here is a story that i heard recently. 

Two brothers lived and farmed on a site. One was married and had a large family, while the other was single. They lived in close proximity to each other, and each worked his land growing wheat. When harvest time arrived, each was blessed with a bountiful crop and piled up his grain for long-term storage. The unmarried brother, observing his good fortune, thought to himself that God had blessed him with more than he needed, whereas his brother, who was blessed with a large family, could surely use more. He arose in the middle of the night and secretly took from his grain and put it in his brother’s pile. Similarly, the married brother thought to himself that he was fortunate to have children who will care for him in his old age, while his brother will depend on what he saved. He, too, arose in the middle of the night and quietly transferred grain from his pile to his brother’s. In the morning, each pondered why there was no noticeable decrease in his own pile, and so they repeated the transfer the next night. These nocturnal activities went on for several nights, until one night the brothers bumped into each other. In that instant, in the dark of night, the glow of brotherly love lit up the mountain sky; they each understood what the other had been doing and fell into each other’s arms in a loving embrace. 

According to the legend, when God saw that display of brotherly love, He selected the site for His Temple. That's because a temple is a place where the brotherly love is shown. Its a place where our concern for others should be more.

Believing a Different Story

In Mathew 28, we see about two groups who witness the resurrection, the women and the soldiers. Both see the angel, both see the rollin...
