Thanks for taking a look at The Scripture Menu! Our primary goal is to help
Christians get turned on the the Word of God. We have a couple of secondary goals:
To provide a place people can come to quickly find Scriptures when they have
something to pray about. We believe it is critical to pray the Scripture. If
what you are praying for is in God's Will, then your prayer will be
effective! How else can you find out God's Will than searching actual Scripture?
To educate Christians on what the Word says about certain topics. Our goal is
not to promote any agenda, and generally our goal is not to "teach" the Word
on this site (although the "appetizers" section does contain some more
interpretive content); what we want to do is present relevant Scripture
verses, including as much of the immediate context as seems practical, and
let the reader see for himself what
the Bible says. For this reason, we have generally tried to stay away from
passages which commentators and scholars may agree are relevant to a topic,
but which the average man on the street may not clearly see are
about the topic.
As a goal of much lesser importance, we hope to promote usage of the excellent
English Standard Version (ESV)
translation of the Bible. This version was translated keeping in mind not only
EXTREME accuracy, but also understandability, and literary excellence and
beauty. Scripture quoted on this site is from the latest edition of the ESV.
A brief explanation of the several sections of this site:
Appetizers: These are brief mini-expositions of certain Bible topics, heavily
dependent on the Scripture. Some of them amount almost to lists of verses with a
short comment on each verse. We are not seminary-trained Bible scholars... only
lifetime students of the Word... but these are things we've learned in our study
over the years. Feel free to agree or disagree with any or all of our conclusions.
Entrées: These are the whole reason the site exists. We pray that
these lists will be especially helpful to you in your walk with the Lord! Hopefully
less-interpretive, they have been assembled to show as complete a picture of what
the Word says about the chosen topics as possible. If you know of a verse or
passage that belongs on one of these pages, please let us know!
Drinks: In keeping with our "menu" theme, the "drinks" are lists of verses
about things the Bible talks about drinking. (Please realize that the Bible NEVER
condones, and actually condemns outright in several places, actually drinking
physical blood. You'll have to study the theology of those passages on your
Sides: Have you ever needed to know where the Ten Commandments were, but
didn't know where to look? We've found it, and lots of other famous passages, for
Dessert: It's OK to have fun, even if you're a Christian! This category
is all about having fun and staying clean at the same time. Some of the content
may be syndicated from other sites, so if you see anything on there that needs to go,
let us know.

These items are hand-picked by us for inclusion in rotation on the site; most of
them are either actual ESV Bibles, ESV-related reference works, or great general
Bible reference materials, with the occasional "other" item thrown in for fun.
