We often wonder why bad things happen, and I believe that the best answers can be found in the New Testament, where we are told to be joyful about those bad things that happen to us. James 1:2 says that we should consider it pure joy to face trials. The Bible tells us that bad things happen for three specific purposes: in order to accomplish God’s master plan; to give us perseverance; and, to provide us with heavenly rewards.4 Simple Guidelines to Interpreting Scripture
One of the most important things to think about when attempting to interpret Scripture is context. I can’t possibly count the number of times I’ve seen individuals jump on a thought or “doctrine” without considering the context of the scripture upon which they are basing it. Many read a scripture and jump right on it, claiming something that is just really “out there” because they don’t read on (or around the verse), they don’t read further in the passage and ask some vital questions about it. Here are four simple guidelines I use to make sure I am considering this vital key to understanding Scripture (and to keep me out of trouble).Biblical Faith – What is It?

It is commonplace today to claim victimhood; discrimination in race, age, gender, stature, religion, intelligence or socioeconomic status. Claiming victim status has become prevalent as a strategy to shift political argument, excuse us from personal responsibility or gain favor. In short; it works. However, this trend is purely secular. Christians who are bound by faith to Jesus Christ are never victims: they are conquerors. Christians can’t have it both ways.Who is This Leader Who is Being Treated in Such an Appalling Manner by Other Leaders?
In the Chapters of the four Gospels immediately preceding the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ we have detailed accounts of His two trials. It would be more accurate to describe them as inquisitions, for that is what they were. When Caiaphas and his friends had done their work Jesus was marched off to Roman Governor Pilate.
