BibleMany people read the Bible. Why do they read it? Some try to get literary value and others want to learn valuable life lessons from the Bible. However, the most important purpose of reading the Bible is to seek and find the way of eternal life and the kingdom of heaven. What is the core of the Bible?

You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me (John 5:39)

The core of the Bible is Christ testified to by it. No human beings can see or know the spiritual world. Only Christ is able to know the spiritual world and teach us the way to the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, Christ is essential for the salvation of our souls. If we meet Christ, we can know the way to the kingdom of heaven, and if not, we cannot find the way to the heaven. For this reason, Jesus said that we should know Christ to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. (John 17:3)

2000 years ago, the disciples who met Christ could find the way to the kingdom of heaven through his teachings. But as the time passed by, the way taught by Jesus disappeared by Satan who tried to disturb the Work of God’s Redemption (Daniel 7:25; Revelation 5:1.) How can we, human beings who lost the way of salvation, find it again? The Bible prophesies that Christ is to appear once again for our salvation.

So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:28)

If someone says that he knows the Bible well but if he does not know Christ who has appeared a second time, he actually knows nothing about salvation and eternal life. Some people say that they must see the Bible as a whole, not partially. It’s quite right if it means that the Bible must be understood in the context of the overall Work of Redemption.

The Work of Redemption is being progressed by God the Holy Spirit following the Father and the Son. In these days, the core of the salvation of the age of the Holy Spirit is God the Holy Spirit or the Second Coming Christ. Those who do not know the Second Coming Christ cannot realize salvation and eternal life whether they see the Bible partially or as a whole. It’s because it is Christ who makes us realize it (Revelation 5:1-5; John 14:26.)

If you really desire salvation, you must abandon stereotypes. The Bible is a mere book to those who cannot realize Christ, the core of the Bible.

The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) believes in Christ Ahnsahnghong as the Savior of this age and the Second Coming Christ according to the Bible. Please visit this site for more information.
