Some of you have expressed an interest in reading the Old Testament all the way from the beginning to the end with Wayne and me. We're going to be using the King James Bible version to read from because it is accepted in many religions (not just the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) as the most correct translation of the bible. If you are interested in reading this version and you don't have a copy of the book you can go to http://www.lds.org where you can read the text. After entering the site you go to the GOSPEL LIBRARY on the menu and then click on SCRIPTURES from the side menu. The OLD TESTAMENT will be listed there where you can click and start your reading.
Since we all have such diverse backgrounds and ideas we would like to emphasize the comments of our posts to be limited to how we can relate what we read in the Old Testament to our everyday lives right now. We'd like to discourage doctrinal differences on the blog. If you have questions you would like to ask us about our doctrinal view, please message us on Wayne's website and we'll be happy to share our view with you. We don't want this experience to be contentious or argumentative at all. We want this to be an uplifting experience that we can all share together no matter what our religious affiliations may be.
Some of you started reading the Old Testament tonight so let's get going! Let's have the goal of reading a minimum of 3 pages a day, 21 pages a week, which is about the same as 2 short chapters a day. At this speed it will take us a little over a year to complete the work. Let's have Monday be report day for everything. Maybe we can help each other conquer any other New Year's resolutions that you need help in achieving.
So far I have the following interested in reading the Old Testament. Let me know if I missed anyone or you would like to join us. I'm looking forward to actually completing my New Year's resolutions for a change. Ha!
