The first time that I touched The Bible is in Peter’s home. I was introduced to an English Corner by a good friend. And before that, I have no idea about The Bible and Nazarenes. Until we almost went into Peter’s home, she told me that Peter is a Nazarene and he taught us English lover something about The Bible. I wanted to have a try because of my curiosity.
When all of us got into his house, we all felt enthusiastic about each other. Peter prepared dinner for us, and he said to us that all Nazarenes are the family of each other, and all Nazarenes are equal, they help with each other, they share things with each other, and they prepare food for each other for free. Then, we new students received a book The New Testament Holly Bible from Peter; he said that we can see this Bible as a story about Jesus or a Foreigner book to improve our English and know about some European culture. We learned some soft songs about The Bible, smiles on everyone’s face. After that, we started our study of Bible.
Bible was commonly described as “a greatest book”。 Though The Bible was finished before two thousand years ago, it still has a deep effect among people in nowadays, including all kinds of people, such as leaders, sportsmen or scientists and so on. Several of them read and studied The Bible. To open The Bible is always beneficial. But, it also has some ideas that I can not accept it completely for that I am an atheist. I do not hold that there is someone who has the ability to survive all the people in the world. I had an argue with Peter in this question and I also ask some other friends’ opinion about matter, they all considered that Jesus is the most perfect existence in the world, and he rescued our world, so that we can live at present. The Nazarenes see Jesus as a goddess in Chinese mythology, however, in fact, we Chinese people only serve the great woman as a dream, and we do not fall into the mixture of reality and dummy. In the Bible, they think all the people have sins, and the Jesus was punished because of our sins. Whoever wants to go to the heaven instead of hails must go through him, this is the only way. Jesus is the only cross to the rebirth places. All Nazarenes believe that Jesus is the only one who is perfect completely and he has no sins, so, he is the only person who has the qualification to survive others and undertake their sins. Jesus rescued us, he died. These Nazarenes regard Jesus as God from above, just as The Bible saying, no shortcomings. They obey Jesus and believe in Jesus totally. Whoever believes in Jesus has an eternal life. As what we old emperors did in the past, their orders must be carried out follow emperors’ opinions. That is to say, most of Nazarenes live without their own thoughts and understandings; they live under others’ favors, which is quite foolish and lamentable.
At the end of this book, I knew that if I do something good for others, I may get encourage and rewards from that God, otherwise, the God may punish me. Just as the old saying goes, “what is coming not rewarded, not the time.” This are the profound consideration that I get from The Bible, let religious faith become a way of comfort instead of an edged tool used by common people. I believe our world will be better than before.
