The Bible And How Much Of It We Should Follow

We have been given the Bible for a couple different reasons. We have been given it to teach, (2 Timothy 3:16) so that we can learn what God wants from us (Deuteronomy 17:19) But how much of it should we follow?

Imagine you get a recipe for of the most amazing cookies you have ever eaten. And you start making them right away. The recipe calls for flour, and sugar, chocolate chips, quick oats, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, vegetable oil, and other things that go in cookies. Now, do you think that because they are the most amazing cookies that you have ever eaten, you'd want to follow the recipe to the letter? Of COURSE you would! They're awesome! If you add anything to it or take anything away then they're not going to be the best cookies in the world. The recipe knows better. The recipe always knows better when they're the best cookies in the world. The same thing goes with the Bible. If we follow the Bible, the whole Bible, then we're going to get to heaven. So yes, we do have to follow the whole Bible, and we cannot add to it, or take any away. Thank you for reading. :)
