Of course, I agree...
I'd just like to say that not everyone who becomes saved had necessarily read the Bible.
Al ost ten years passed between salvation and Bible, in my case.
And I know of some saved persons who never read it!
Devils, which are fallen angels, have no hope for the ones who followed after Satan have already sealed their fate.
The meaning of hope to we who are in Christ and He in us is that we have hope based on a feeling of confident expectation in all the promises of God for our well being as God only wants the best for us and will always supply our needs.
???? It was for your encouragement (The Scriptures) You asked questions about hope. Scripture answered them...Sorry? They answered everything you asked. As a pastor / teacher, I have never thought of Scripture or fellowship as casual, but rather encouraging, fortifying and grounding in a common faith among believers. I'm not much of a philosophizer.
