Hello Avery.  What a fascinating question you have for us today.  This would typically be like asking a popular singer what their favorite album or Gold record is or a movie star what their favorite movie would be or a parent which is your favorite child?  For most people these questions would be impossible to answer.  

While it is true that the Holy Bible has a number of important messages to communicate to us there is a main reoccurring theme. 

So here it is......drum roll please.....the answer to your $25,000 question:
The main theme or takeaway from the Bible is summed up in John 3:16-17; "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."  That seems good enough right?  But we can't stop there let's move on to Verse 17; "For Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the world but that through Him the world might be saved."

There you have it....the main point and takeaway from the Bible can be distilled to these points Jesus came to help us now and to prepare the way for our eternal future with Him.

God is not some Cosmic Santa Claus checking his list once and twice waiting for you and me to mess up.  Rather He is leading the most impressive Cheerleading Squad ever assembled to root for us each day.
