Biblical Autobiography, Part 3

Good Essays
As time has progressed, this class has unexpectedly grown on me. After truly believing with every fiber of my being that there wasn’t anything more I could get by taking this class, I’m happy (and rather shocked) to say that I’m wrong. The continued exploration of the Bible throughout this semester has been exhilarating, eye-opening, and even at times, confusing. Nonetheless, these are to be expected when delving deep into the word of the Lord.
Since God allowed me to born into an ideal Christian family, I’ve always known about the Bible and what it teaches. Growing up, I went to church on Sunday mornings and followed along during the sermon.
