Bible Week 1

Alan Kurschner - over at Calvinst Gadfly - threw down the kind of challenge I really need to take up. He's offering a passage of Scripture every Friday for memorization. The goal is to have embedded 52 sections of the New Testament to memory by 2008. So, I'm going for it. But like all whiny people, the first thing I do is debate using his chosen text: the NIV (although I think the NIV may better clarify the meaning of this first passage). Still, I've decided to re-post his selections here using the HCSB (Holman Christian Standard Bible). Here's week #1:

28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. (Romans 8:28-30 HCSB)
