“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).
“It doesn’t really matter what you believe, just as long as you’re sincere” reflects the thinking of our culture — and is a lie straight from hell! It does matter what you believe because the Bible says our choices determine our destiny.
Jesus was not kidding or exaggerating when He said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” We find that truth in the Bible!
If you were an enemy of Christ, if you hated His people, what would you do to hinder the cause of Christ and discourage His people? The most effective way to do it would be to attack and destroy the source from which Christians get their instructions, guidance and encouragement: God’s Word, the Bible.
I think people sometimes find the Bible boring and uninteresting because they don’t know the Author — or if they do, they don’t know His heart! But when the Holy Spirit reveals the heart of God, the pages of Scripture become irresistible. They reveal a fatherly love, a kind-hearted Creator who delights in His children. The Bible is a Father’s letter to His loved children!

Johann Gutenberg (c. 1400-1468) was the inventor of movable type and the father of modern printing.
