NON-CHRISTIANS...do you have a favorite Bible verse?

Yeah yeah, I know what you're thinking...but I've been reading The Year of Living Biblically, and I've learned a lot.

I love the whole "love is patient" psalm, proverb...what is it? Someone tell me. It reads like poetry to me, I think it's really pretty.

I also love the story of Moses. Egyptian stuff is awesome.

  • The passage is 1 Cor. 13:4-7
    4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres

  • My favorite is "I have learned, it whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content." I think it's Theselonians. I also love 1 Cor.

    I'm Pagan, but I believe the Bible has some really important messages to impart. There are some really beautiful, life-affirming things in the bible that we non-christians should still pay attention to.

  • All of Ecclesiastes, but 3:1-8 the best.

    1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

    2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

    3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

    4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

    5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

    6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

    7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

    8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

  • Song of Solomon 2:11-12...because, to me, it's beautiful

    My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

    For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

    The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land

    Proverbs 10:12
    Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs

  • So, by not being Christian, are you implying that I worship the Devil...or that I'm not allowed to read the Bible?

    That is so ignorant, Anon. Feel free to dispense your witty diatribe, but I find it impossible to respect sarcasm from someone without enough (metaphorical) balls to sign their name to it.

    As for the question, I also am fond of Song of Solomon 8: 6-7

    6 Place me like a seal over your heart,
    like a seal on your arm;
    for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
    It burns like blazing fire,
    like a mighty flame.

    7 Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot wash it away.
    If one were to give
    all the wealth of his house for love,
    it would be utterly scorned.

    ------------------------
    If this question asking non-Christians to say their favorite verse from the Bible is equivalent to a Christian having a favorite book from the Devil's handbook, then aren't you calling non-Christians devil worshippers? The fact of the matter is other religions DO NOT EQUAL the opposite of Christianity.

    I'm a Christian and if someone would like to know my favorite passages from the Quran, Upanishads/Gita/Mahabarata, Talmud or any other holy book I may have read, go ahead and ask!

  • I had no idea the song Turn Turn Turn was from the Bible LOL. I love that song.

    And anon...it's hard to worship something you don't believe in. I'm simply interested in all sorts of religions =D

  • "is this the same as asking a Christian what their favorite passage in the Devil's handbook is? "

    only if you ask someone whom follows the devil's handbook.. and no mother on here that I know of does. (note: satanists and Pagans do NOT believe in Satan, therefore do no follow "his" handbook)
