The lack of true biblical literacy on the part of God’s people is alarming

We are in a time of history when we have so much
Information about Christianity (the Lord Jesus Christ)
Yet many don’t take the time out to read and research
Certain things must be learnt and studied but
Today we find ourselves in a fast paced life that
Constantly tries to ‘tear’ us away from Our Lord and Saviour

The only reason why God has allowed different Bible translations is so
That the message can get to everyone ( on their level)—in his mercy
We might not agree with every translation but each of us
Can take the time out to study the context of the verse
In order to get the proper meaning—we live in a great time
We can learn so many truths (keys) of the Gospel

The lack of true biblical literacy on the part of God’s people is alarming
Today people believe in a ‘micro-Christianity’—
Our generation has lost the art of reading—
With this lack we forget that Jesus is the one that was bleeding
We live in a time when our senses are being bombarded
With constant noise and entertainment—the heart goes out to my learners
In their pain I understand their strain and so I pray that Jesus
Will guard their soul because it isn’t easy for our youth—

When people are told they should read their Bibles
Their instincts, correctly, are to begin with Genesis
But they get half way and are confronted by ‘Cain and Abel’
This is not easy reading and so the reader becomes ‘confused’—
The one’s who tend to read their Bibles the most, tend also to read them poorly
Just think of all the denominations that are defending their ‘doctrine’

Many just read the ‘good parts’ of the Bible because it suits them
But it will be wise to remember that
A battery is made up of a positive and a negative so
It is imperative that the Bible presents the true negatives of life

We are in a time of history when we have so much
Information about Christianity (the Lord Jesus Christ)
Yet many don’t take the time out to read and research
Certain things must be learnt and studied but
Today we find ourselves in a fast paced life that
Constantly tries to ‘tear’ us away from Our Lord and Saviour
