You can trust the Bible. If you are unsure of the translation you can read John 3:16:
For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
There are other translations that will take away from that message and it will be like nails scraping on a blackboard when you find them. I throw them out entirely and I don’t find them worth mentioning in here.
6Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.
7Then Joseph brought his father Jacob in and presented him before Pharaoh. After Jacob blessed Pharaoh,
11 Israel said to Joseph, “I never expected to see your face again, and now God has allowed me to see your children too.”
5May the Lord bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem, 6and may you live to see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel.
31Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life.
There is a point to all this and I am getting to it. ❤ God craves for a mutual admiration society but if He wanted a creation that would love and adore Him He would have made it so that we would all love Him. But yet He gave us the free will and the choice to have our own beliefs and our own thoughts and gave us the guidelines to do so and shows us how precious life is so that we will WANT to keep living even when this world just wants to die. Did we forget how important children are?
Explain this in your own words:
16Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sin.
19This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
46[Moses] said to them, “Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law.
Common question: Why can’t we all just coexist?
We are all so dead set against each other that our way is the right way and we don’t see it but we’re being divided into two distinguished groups. Only two. This divide is cutting through churches, malls, work, homes, families, apartments, Facebook, twitter, etc. The people that choose life. And the people that choose death. And every single one of us are responsible for our own choice.
