I am a 76 year old, legally blind man. I read the Bible from Genesis through Revelation several times, and about a decade ago my reading of the Bible transformed itself into a study of the Bible.

What I mean by that is that simply reading the Bible was not sufficient, and there is a hunger to understand God and all of teachings of the Bible more fully.

To that end I pursued how Scripture interacted with other Scriptures. Of particular interest was how does the Old Testament and the New Testament affect each other. I must confess that I have never concluded that, or for that matter any other area of study in the Bible; and I am continuously making new amazing discoveries.

Recently my curiosity as to what God's master plan is, and specifically how the events of time are fulfilling that plan.

After years of study I have convinced myself that I cannot on this earth even begin to penetrate the mind of God.

I have also learned that asking that the Holy Spirit teach me more in depth about God's word opens doors of understanding which we mortal men cannot even imagine. Prayer is an indispensable tool for studying the Bible.

comment What biblical passage(s) reveal(s) what God says was the fallen angels' sin?
@FMShyanguya Your question did not request a Denominational view point and so my answer was strictly a biblical one, based on the King James translation as stated, which is of course a Protestant version. You have every right to disagree with me, but I am perplexed at how you can disagree with the Bible unless you are a Catholic and use The Catholic Bible which is far different. If you only wanted a certain denominational view you should have asked for it to the exclusion of other beliefs.

@FMShyanguya you are wrong on both of your assertions. You might benefit from a bit of research and study.

They also did not know good since the tree is no0t just the tree of the knowledge of evil, but the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

comment Is there Scriptural Evidence that Moses had a command that made it Lawful for a Man to Divorce his Wife?
@ClintEastwood My example is good different people read it differently, so it depends on what Denomination you belong to. I agree with your interpation, and have divorced for that very reason. But I have to accept the interpation of those who decided to forgive in the name of Christ.

@curiousdannii Isn't that the precept of the site, that no one has all the answers and that any additional information is welcomed. I look forward to any elaboration you can add to my answer and even to your editing of my answer if you can improve it.

@curiousdannii I can do that, but it will only be a restatement of those quoted in the question.
