What's In The Bible DVD Giveaway

I just want to preface this blog post.  If it looks different, it is because it is different.

I normally blog using Live Writer . . . but once again . . . I'm having more computer issues.  So, this blog post is coming from you direct, using Blogger.

I am thankful that no matter what, God's Word doesn't need updated nor does it demand a constant supply of energy in order to be used/read.

You don't need a special degree to understand God's letter to you, compared to the complex and unusual language that I recently discovered when trying to download the new Live Writer Essentials.   I need to install some Windows Vista service pack.  Really?


However, when it comes to the Bible {alls} that you need is the Holy Spirit -- the Helper God left behind when Jesus ascended to begin preparations in Heaven for the people that love Him.

And if you don't have God's Helper, you simply ask God.  If you don't know how to love God, you just ask.  (and then maybe watch the DVD I am giving away, thanks to Tyndale).

That's right, you can just ask God.  You don't have to look around for a computer geek.  (No offense.)

It may go something like this (at least it did for me some 16 years ago),
"God, I'm coming to read your Bible and I simply don't understand it.  I need help.  I'm trying to figure out the whole Jesus-thing in my life . . . and I need You to help me understand that He (and You) love me, that Jesus died for my sins, and that He rose again on the third day.  Will you please help me to learn about you through reading the Bible?  Maybe bring some people in my life who will walk me through the Bible in such a way so as to not make me feel dumb . . . and will you show me how You are in control?  Because giving you my life . . . well, sounds scary and it doesn't make sense.  So, God . . . please help me.  Show me how I need you and help me to want to read your Bible and understand Your Words to me." 

There . . . that's a start.  That was my start many years ago.

And the funny thing . . . before I came to talk with Jesus I could not stand Veggie Tales.

I do have reason for telling you this.

I thought that Veggie Tales was the most annoying cartoon ever put to color.  (For those who haven't heard of Veggie Tales, according to Wikipedia, it is a cartoon created by a man named Phil Vischer.

It conveys "Christian moral themes and teaches Biblical values and lessons. The animated feature involves stories told by a group of recurring vegetable characters who lived on a kitchen countertop.")

But all that changed.

(I asked God to help me because I was doing a pretty terrible job running my life.)

And now, not only do I like Veggie Tales . . . but I have the majority of their songs memorized (thanks to my children), and I am hooked on Phil Vischer's newest project called What's in the Bible?

Israel Gets a King! (What's in the Bible?)

Why do I like it?

Well, the heart of this:  when it is all said and done, this set of 13 DVDs will walk your children, you, and new believers through the ENTIRE Bible.

To me . . . that kind of entertainment is worth paying for.

My kiddos heart What's in the Bible?  In fact, they like the website almost better because they can interact with the characters.  There are coloring pages and Popsicle stick puppet theaters and videos!

The DVD's are geared to entertain kids, but the reality is that they do an excellent job of teaching any aged human about God's AMAZING plan for His creation . . . US!
