Sunday Excerpts - The Bible is Not Self-Help

If we view the Bible as a "self-help" book, able to give us pointers in how to deal better with ourselves and our lives, we will see Jesus as our psychiatrist or bank or buddy.

If instead, we view the Bible as the source of life and salvation for sinful, dead souls, then we will see Jesus set apart as redeemer and truth-giver and God.

The original self-help book said "you can't. You need God."
