The teaching and study of Scripture is vital for many reasons. We have been given volumes of historical data that help us understand the universe, the world, and humanity. Still, none of the literature available has endured the scrutiny and test of time like the 66-books of the bible. They are history, reality and the very inspired written words of God. The purpose of studying the scriptures, and being taught the scriptures is this; to mature and grow in fellowship with the Heavenly Father. It is the will of God for every person to have Christ formed in them. It takes time, discipline and diligence. Be steadfast!
"Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and these are they which testify of Me."
- John 5:39
"From infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work."
- 2 Timothy 3: 15-17
The Bible with Notebooks & Journals
Keep a bible, journal (notebook) close as you read, listen or watch material on this site. Truly, this is one of the only ways to stay out of deception as you pursue Truth. There is a downloadable/printable PDF for each study & teaching. You are free to share with others and use them for group bible-study. The Bereans (Acts 17) were known as "more noble-minded" people when compared to others, because they received the messages eagerly and examined the Scriptures everyday to see if the teachings were true. What's interesting about this Scripture concerning the Berean's is this.... it does not say all believed after examining the Scriptures. It is okay for someone not to agree, but it's not okay for someone to abandon the search for truth when they disagree. If, at anytime you have questions; know that they are encouraged and welcomed. The Contact tab at the top of the website has an area for you to submit questions, comments or concerns. Many times as believers OR seekers, we dismiss something that we don't agree with immediately. I've learned that the stuff I dismiss quickly is usually worth searching out again. So, be like the Bereans, and examine the Scriptures as you go.
"Now the Bereans were more noble-minded than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if these teachings were true. As a result, many of them believed, along with quite a few prominent Greek women and men."
