A Deaf And Dumb Man On The Bible
The following remarks on the Bible were written by a deaf and dumb young
man 26 years of age:--"The Bible is more valuable than all other books
in the world. It is divided into two parts, the one called the Old
Testament and the other the New Testament. The former was written by
inspired men, directed by the Spirit of God; the latter contains the
news of the Gospel, written by the witnessing disciples while Christ was
n the earth. The Bible informs us of the guilt of sin, of the
punishment of the wicked, of the Saviour who died to save men from
dangerous destruction, of the way of forgiveness by Christ, of the
condescension of Him, of the mercy and love of Him, and of the happiness
which Christ has promised to His disciples.
The Bible teaches us how to do good to others, how to help them in
distress, how to avoid temptation, how to love and obey God, how to pray
to God to keep us out of dangerous things, and pray to God for our
parents, for their children, and for our other friends.
The Bible is a very precious gift from heaven, and contains many
precious truths, therefore we should reverence it.
