I love the Acts of the Apostles.  It's nice to see the similarities in the Early Church and the Church I belong to.

Yes, I attend a church that is definately a New Testament church.

Of course it is!
We follow Christ's ways just like in the NT.

JustMe, Nickolai thinks the roman catholic religion is the one and only true church.

If I had to join a religion it would not be his (Nickolai )

I'm Not Roman Catholic.

I'm Eastern Orthodox.  There is a huge difference.

I haven't noticed a huge difference, but that's best saved for another thread.

Other than the gospels of Matthew and John, I love Ecclesiastes. No man supasses the wisdom of Solomon.

Of the Gospels, I think Mark and John are my favorites. If I had to pick one, it would be Mark.

Maybe that is because Mark had a more journalistic approach to his writing and in college I majored in journalism.

My favorite book of the Bible at this point in my life is Proverbs.

The wise sayings of a man that at a young age realized his dependence on God and yet inspite of all  God's blessings in his later years lost that dependence and yet much of his writing show us how we must never allow our blessings to remove us from His presence.

It speaks of the practical affairs of ones life and emphasises Righteousness and the Fear of God.

I like Acts. I like the conversion of Saul.  It reminds me that we all do bad things and can be forgiven.  

I also like Job.  It reminds me to constantly thank God for all he has done.  The past few years have been extremely rough and it's easy to fall into a pit of despair given the circumstances, but I am reminded to keep my head up, thank God, and be happy b/c nothing is so bad that we can not overcome it.

I also think the book of Acts is the most interesting book in the bible and actually a compilation of the whole NT. I read thru that book more than any other and of course the book of Romans is the next book I read after that.
    I think the book of Ezekiel in the OT is one of the most interesting books and I read that with Revelation as it appears to follow that book pretty closely and actually helped me interpret revelation a lot.

One evening I was reading Ephesians and discovered the whole function, plan, and synopsis of God, His plan, Jesus's
and our place in the whole matter of life.   This is in chapter three of Ephesians beginning in verse 14 through 21.  I will not write it out because I have little time left on here.  

If you read slowly, it will show you everything in a nutshell.  I share this whenever the opportunity comes up.  It was such a found jewel.  Thanks for the opportunity to share it.  

I think the whole book of Ephesians is wonderful.

If we claim to be without sin, we decieve ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness...
But  if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense-Jesus Christ, the Righteous

The book of Isaiah is my favorite because the prophet's writings are beautiful, on point and indisputable.
