What if the Bible IS true?

What if .... the Bible's assertion that we will "reap what we have sown" ... is factual?
Galatians 6:7

What if ... instead of "getting away with it" ... you actually do pay for your indiscretions, wrong-doings and "sins"?
Ecclesiastes 8:11

What if ... you do actually have to "serve somebody"(whether you like it or not) ... AND by not actively "opting-in" to acceptance of G*d's authority and sovereignty over your life, you automatically default to playing exactly the same role on, exactly the same terms in service to Satan/the deceiver/the accuser/the Devil?

What if ... despite your well-informed opinion on this topic .... that you're wrong .... and the Bible IS true?

What if ... an in-depth study of this Book, known as the Bible (ie irrespective of how you "remember" it's contents from your youth), you found facts, sayings, themes, analogies, songs, parables and narratives completely at odds with what you thought you'd find?

What if ... most of what you thought it contained wasn't there or ... it was there, but now you see the Book, the people in the Book, the events involving the people in the Book and the message of this Book in a broader, more integrated way?

What if ... events, temptations, hardships, triumphs that affected, influenced, hurt, helped, delayed, blessed the Hebrews/ Israelites/ Jews seems much like what has happened in your life .... now that you've lived it a bit?

What if ... G*d's "best practices" method for managing/motivating humans to learn the lessons He wants them to learn about leading the life He wants them to lead, is by "provoking to jealousy", the individuals He intends as beneficiaries of His Grace/ Mercy/Blessings?

What if ... the long-term "Plan or Program" of G*d, the Name, Jehovah, YHWH, the Creator, the Sovereign of this Earth was ultimately about the success of a race/ identity/ group/ religion/ faith "other" than yours (or the one you grew up with)?

What if ... none of the established 20th-21st Century religions were "right"?

What if ... the olive tree of Romans 11 most accurately describes G*d's future "Plan" and accurately warns the types of branches - the broken off ones, the grafted-in ones, the re-graft-able (both in & out) ones - about: election, grace, stumbling, jealousy, casting away, boasting, unbelief, highmindedness, goodness and severity ... and ignorance of this mystery.


30For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: 31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. 32For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
