Discussion for Deuteronomy 1

    It is very important to believe and trust in God's word, totally depend on it, disobedient to God is not acceptable.

    in Deuteronomy , it's so beautiful, I am glad that I don't have to be under the Law for Salvation. Apostle Paul explain this very well in the book of Romans. We are under grace by faith through the Lord Jesus Christ. We must know who wrote the books of the Bible and who was it written to, for understanding. Not all scripture is to us, yes we can learn from them. Read Romans through Philemon
  • David
    So far I have read chapter 1 and realize it teaches a lesson of faith in God. The children of Israel could not see God who was bigger that their circumstance and as such most never made it to the promised land.

    Deut. - What a PRECIOUS book. It's so full of God's love, patience and wisdom. Somewhere in Deut. it states that His commandments are not grievous - and is reiterated in 1Jn.5:3. And it's SO true; His commandments are so easy to live with. And - CHEAPER! I save $40 a week since He delivered me from tobacco 3 yrs. ago. I give that to Him every week.
