Read the Old Testament with an open mind, like a little child that knows nothing, as Jesus says in Mark 10:15, Matthew 18:3, Luke 18:17; the truth in the bible will reveal itself. GOD makes his intention very plain in the bible, there is no need for interpretation. If a person with prior believes, tries looking for verses in the bible to justify his believes, it would be like trying to fit a square block into a round hole. Bible verses would need to be manipulated, cut into short verse to fit. God, the Almighty left us such evidence of men’s fellability.
Mark 10:15 (Jesus)
Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.
Matthew 18:3 (Jesus)
Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Luke 18:17 (Jesus)
Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
Elias, Malachi 4:5-6
