"The Word of God well understood, and religiously obeyed, is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian."~ A.W. Towzer ~ Could you imagine just having half a body? One leg, one arm, one eye, ect. Life would be so different, and quite challenging for you. Well, if you are daily going through your life, without the word of God hid in your heart, you may as well only have half a body. You are not a completely whole person, just because you have memorized John 3:16 When you are planning a trip, do you only take half of the map with you? Of course not, you take the entire map, in order to be able to reach your destination. My friend, heaven is a real place, and if you wish to reach your final destination, you must read, and follow the entire road map, which is the word of God.
