    Love reading this book in the bible. I thrill reading the accounts of God 's word and instructions given to the people. It 's like being there. And, although written hundreds of years earlier than today, knowing this is the same God, who became flesh so we could receive salvation is both awe inspiring and Instills a Godly fear in my heart. How amazing to think God loves His Creations! That includes people. However, God hates sin and will not share the same space with it. He would that none should perish, but that all people would come repent from sin to Him. Amen

    God will allow things to happen to us when we are rebellious we need to stop blaming God now God do not allows anything to happen to us with out warning us first.the question should be when God speaks to us will we obey him. or will we be rebellious the choice u make is up to u but God will deal with us when we do not l listen to him it will be whatever his will is for u

    Wow im just blown away now. By the probability it seems that there were real giants that lived in the land. It does seem however that there are anti bible opponents in archeology that are hideing the findings of many archeological digs. Why? Because it goes against their darwin theory of evolution. It would make the bible literal.
