Open Access Bible 2016 + King James Bible (Special edition)

The Bible (from Koine Greek ?? ??????, ta biblia, "the books") is a collection of sacred texts or scriptures that Jews and Christians consider to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and humans.

Many different authors contributed to the Bible. What is regarded as canonical text differs depending on traditions and groups; a number of Bible canons have evolved, with overlapping and diverging contents.The Christian Old Testament overlaps with the Hebrew Bible and the Greek Septuagint; the Hebrew Bible is known in Judaism as the Tanakh. The New Testament is a collection of writings by early Christians, believed to be mostly Jewish disciples of Christ, written in first-century Koine Greek. These early Christian Greek writings consist of Gospels, letters, and apocalyptic writings. Among Christian denominations there is some disagreement about the contents of the canon, primarily the Apocrypha, a list of works that are regarded with varying levels of respect.

Attitudes towards the Bible also differ amongst Christian groups. Roman Catholics, high church Anglicansand Eastern Orthodox Christians stress the harmony and importance of the Bible and sacred tradition, while Protestantchurches, including Evangelical Anglicans, focus on the idea of sola scriptura, or scripture alone. This concept arose during the Protestant Reformation, and many denominations today support the use of the Bible as the only source of Christian teaching.

With estimated total sales of over 5 billion copies, the Bible is widely considered to be the best-selling book of all time.It sells approximately 100 million copies annually, and has been a major influence on literature and history, especially in the West, where the Gutenberg Bible was the first book printed using movable type.

What is your church's priority? Are you more concerned with filling your building or furthering the Kingdom? This book will challenge you to evaluate just how important gospel-based evangelism is to you and your church, and call on you to restore an intentional evangelism strategy within the body.

Beyond Good and Evil (Golden Deer Classics) [The Classics Collection #04]



Download

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

Beyond Good and Evil (German: Jenseits von Gut und Bose), subtitled "Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future" (Vorspiel einer Philosophie der Zukunft), is a book by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886.

It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction.

In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

My Jewish Journey to Christ: A Personal Testimony of a 40 Year Awakening

Secretly, I wanted so much to believe. Secretly, I was so jealous that I was not a part of this wonderful community of believers. Never before had I experienced the comfort of belonging as I did with them. Even though I had not accepted "their" God I was still accepted by them, as one of them. This stirred a jealousy in me and created a sense of loss and separation from the group since I was not able to feel what they felt. I so wanted the Lord to enter my soul and take away the burden and the longing; moreover the emptiness I had lived with most of my life.

On the morning of Saturday, January 7, 2007 the Lord sent His Spirit into the depths of my soul. I was finally free. I was finally one with Him, my Savior.

The Pure In Heart

It is said that "your attitude determines your altitude." and Jesus taught us what attitude we should have at all times - His beloved be-attitudes or beatitudes (Mat 5:3-12). These indeed will determine how far you advance in God's kingdom. This book is about the study of and how to have these attitudes ingrained in your heart and soul. Excerpted from Thomas Watson's Book: "The Beautitudes," we here study "The Pure In Heart" "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God." - Matthew 5:8 Although all the beautitudes are important we focus here on purity of heart as this will allow you to see God and hence lead you into all His nature and "attitude." Ask God to ingrain these attitudes into your heart and soul. Then study the beatitudes (hunger and thirst for them) to learn them and how to get insight to get these in your life - your heart and soul. By God's grace you will get these into your life and you will see the beautiful fruit in your life.

Seeing Behind the Veil

The Religion of the Samurai: A Study of Zen Philosophy and Discipline in China and Japan

Zen was uniquely suited to the Samurai of Japan. The high moral principles of Buddhism, when adopted and adapted by the Japanese warriors who became the Samurai, created an austere philosophy of singular beauty and depth. Its characteristic requirements of strict control over body and mind was exemplified by ancient warrior monks whose serene countenance, even in the face of certain death, made them much admired even by their foes.



Zen may be the most misunderstood of the world's moral philosophies. While it is often classified as a Religion, it is frequently considered by its adherents to be a utilitarian philosophy, a collection of rational moral precepts or, even more simply, as a state of being. The aim of the practice of Zen is to become Enlightened and achieve the beatitude of Nirvana.



To reach Nirvana means to achieve the state of extinction of pain and the annihilation of sin. Zen never looks for the realization of its beatitude in a place like heaven, nor believes in the realm of Reality transcendental of the phenomenal universe, nor gives countenance to the superstition of Immortality, nor does it hold the world is the best of all possible worlds, nor conceives life simply as blessing. It is in this life, full of shortcomings, misery, and sufferings, that Zen hopes to realize its beatitude. It is in this world, imperfect, changing, and moving, that Zen finds the Divine Light it worships. It is in this phenomenal universe of limitation and relativity that Zen aims to attain to highest Nirvana.
