Perhaps you have seen this chain email running around and I thought I’d do the research and put it to death once and for all.
[quote=ChainEmail]I didnt get the Bible out and check but I dont know why somebody would make this up? This is pretty strange or odd how it worked out this way. Even if you are not religious you should read this.
The Center of the Bible
What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?
Answer - Psalms 117
What is the longest chapter in the Bible?
Answer - Psalms 119
Which chapter is in the center of the Bible?
Answer - Psalms 118
Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118
Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118
Add these numbers up and you get 1188.
What is the center verse in the Bible?
Answer - Psalms 118:8
Does this verse say something significant about God’s perfect
will for our lives?
The next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect
will for their lives and that they want to be in the center of His
will, just send them to the center of His Word!
Psalms 118:8 – “It is better to trust in the LORD than
to put confidence in man.”
Now isn’t that odd how this worked out (or was God in the
center of it)?
Assuming that Psalm 118:8 is the center verse (I will prove in my next post that it’s not), this can be inpterpeted as a veiled attack against the pope or it can be just general “trust in God” advice.
