I thought this could be edifying if any Bible believers care to explain which beliefs are really spiritually important to have, hopefully citing chapter and verse. It might be helpful to give examples of Bible truths one need not necessarily have belief in.
ok, Bible in thirty seconds,
mankind rebelled against God, sought independence, sin entered into the world, God
provided a seed that would undo the effects of this rebellion, that seed would come
through Abraham, through Israel, through David and would manifest itself in Jesus
Christ. Christ sacrifice made propitiation for that sin, thus all mankind could now have
a relationship again with God on its basis, sin and thus death would be brought to
nothing. A Heavenly government termed Gods Kingdom, comprising of 144,000
members would rule over a cleansed earth, free from sin, Satan would be destroyed,
'the original serpent', and mankind restored to perfection. The earth shall be restored
to a paradise as it was intended to be and perfect humans will live on it forever! free
from sin and death.
