IMPORTANT INFORMATION IS OVERLOOKED FOR THE UNIMPORTANT BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE DISTRACTED AND CAUGHT UP IN THE TEMPORAL AFFAIRS OF THIS WORLD RATHER THAN LOOKING TO ETERNAL MATTERS. When It Comes To The Bible There Are Some Things Which Are Considered Important To Understand. There is an adversary and there is a hope, but in order to ovecome the adversary and obtain the hope we have to lunderstand the way to the truth that leads to life.

There is a difference between things you should know and things that it may be profitable for you to know.

What you should know is that men are liars, cannot be trusted and will always let you down—even when doing their best to tell you the truth. Why, I myself will let you down if you have expectations of me that I am not able to meet. Nevertheless, if you find a person who does his best to keep his word, then treasure such a friend. All others are not friends because they belong to the father of lies.
  • You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)

  • The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately corrupt; who can understand it? “I the Lord search the mind and try the heart, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” (Jeremiah 17:9–10)
The Bible informs us why the very book itself exists, why we exist, and what is required of each one of us; that God Himself searches the hearts of every person, discerning between thoughts and intent, and how the Omniscient One’s plan for mankind is to be played out.

The Bible does not have the power to impart eternal life. Instead, the Bible bears witness to the Son of God; for He is the very One who has the power to impart life.
  • You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness to me; yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. (John 5:39–40)
The Bible instructs people how they can be saved; for the writings contained within are inspired by God, so every person might come to an understanding of the truth.
  • From childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:15–17)
Moses was shown what God had planned in Heaven for humans on Earth. He was instructed to make this known to the people through (what we know as) the “Tabernacle of Moses” and the Law.
  • They serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly sanctuary; for when Moses was about to erect the tent, he was instructed by God, saying, “See that you make everything according to the pattern which was shown you on the mountain.” (Hebrews 8:5)

  • For Christ has entered, not into a sanctuary made with hands, a copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. (Hebrews 9:24)
While the Bible has been written by men inspired by God, which includes Moses, the exception is the Ten Commandments of Exodus, chapter twenty, verses one to seventeen. These were written by God Himself. There is no evidence that these were copied from any other writings—no evidence whatsoever—even though people make unsubstantiated claims that there is somewhere (NB. Jeremiah 17:9).

The Ten Commandments are the only words recorded to have been written by the Creator of the Universe and given to humans.

The Ten Commandments deal with relationships and are applicable today, just as they were when they were written by the Creator on the two tablets of stone.
  • These words the Lord spoke to all your assembly at the mountain out of the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and he added no more. And he wrote them upon two tables of stone, and gave them to me. (Deuteronomy 5:22)
The Bible tells us that God is the Creator and we live and move and have our being in Him (Acts 17:24-28). The Bible enables us to have a written historical record of how the purpose of God has been worked out. However, only those who are truly genuine will have the eyes of their inner mind opened to understand the truths of God. Those who are selfish, egotistical, and think that a finite mortal being can possess the fullness of the understanding which only the Infinite Immortal One possesses are deceived by their own desires.

These are some of the things which are profitable for you to know about the Bible—there is much more, of course.

The Ten Commandments Are Broader And Deeper Than Superficial Philosophies
