A few posts back I suggested that you simply read the Bible without worrying about fully understanding everything about the passages you are going through.  The idea is to go for quantity.  Keep doing that!  For those of you who are new to Bible Study that should remain your major method for quite a while.  A few things will happen.  First, you will find yourself becoming familiar with how the Lord thinks and talks.  Then, as you find yourself moving through several books of the Bible, you will begin to see how the different books each have a different emphasis or point of view, even if the

When it comes to Bible study it helps to look at the Bible from God’s perspective.  Put yourself in His shoes and think about how you would help your children get to know you.  Probably the best way to go about it would be to write down your thoughts explaining to them, maybe in a series of letters, why you do things the way you do.  You might even want to share some of the deeper things of your heart.  If your kids are to get to know you, they need to know both your hurts and your joys.  You may even need to address some of the ways they are the ones who hurt you.  That’s a hard place for

Narrow view of scripture text 1I am, with this series of posts, likely speaking to several different groups of people. First, are those mature Christians who have studied the Bible for many years. Maybe, like me, they received the Lord into their life at an early age and have been walking with Him ever since. This group, I hope, will keep me on my toes and make sure I stay accurate in what I say. (So log in and comment if you have a concern or question about what I’m saying.) :>) A second group consists of those people who are either......

Vagrants

This morning I was sorting through some old files, deleting what I could and organizing the rest when I ran across this file.  We were living in Butte, Montana at the time and I think I may have originally written it as a letter to the editor of our local paper, The Montana Standard.  It is worth posting here and I hope it stirs us to take a good look at our hearts and consider our motivations.

Opponents of Christianity love to promote the idea that the Bible just doesn't match up with what modern science has discovered about our universe.  They claim that the science contained in the Bible is just "myth" or nice stories.  Not true!  Here is a short discussion along with a PDF of my notes from Genesis Chapter 1.
