Correctly dividing the Bible

Deuteronomy 6:7-9
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

All scripture is for our learning. We are to use the Old Testament as much as we use the New Testament..

WHY? You might ask..

4For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. 5Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: 6That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:4-6

Think of a bible as a jigsaw puzzle that we have all the answers to.. But we need to correctly decide where each piece fits.. So that we have the CORRECT.. And biblical view..

Aforetime=WAY BACK WHEN... God set people to give US instruction on how to live.. and how to live GODLY AND HAPPILY!

 11Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 
1 Corinthians 10:11

We should know that there is stuff put into the bible BECAUSE OF US! Meaning things happened to the apostles, Moses and Abraham.. BECAUSE God knew we would need his input on this subject.. TALK ABOUT LOVE! He loved us enough to put them through that.. teach them that lesson.. and all because we will need that same lesson!
