    I keep getting told the Bible is clear. I believe the Bible, but I dont think it's clear. Without the Spirit, I dont think its possible to understand what the Bible say

    What say you?

    The Bible is clear if you have the spirit and a wish to learn and believe. Just as the Book of Mormon is clear if you have the above.

    I'm not sure.

    I'm waiting for the movie to come out before I make up my mind.

    It is my opnion that there is no one denomination that is able to see the spirit clearly. It is each individual who has the option to read and recieve the revelation the spirit gives them. Every denomination has corruption!

    Some of each but not all and which Baptist by the way there are at least a dozen varieties all of them at least somewhat different than the others.

    There are also a crap load of pretenders to the throne who call themselves Christians but based upon what they preach in the pulpit on sundays are not and most of them have their own TV shows.

    Is the Bible clear?

    Yes.

    Is the English version of it clear?

    No.

    If you want to understand the Bible, you've gotta understand the Old Testament. I mean.....if you read the middle books of a series without reading the first ones, you kinda end up missing out on quite a bit of the story.

    So......learn Hebrew or start studying under a Rabbi.

    THEN you can figure out the New Testament.
