The "I Believe" Bible Study Course
Know What You Believe and Why You Believe
If you are looking for an affordable way to study the Bible at home, read on...
The Bible says the Last Days will be very difficult for Christians. People will not be willing to accept Bible truth. They will follow teachers who have their own agenda. The result will be confusion. Doubt and disbelief will replace faith. The Bible prophesies a great "falling away" from God's Truth as a result.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
2 Timothy 4:3-4
This is why it is so important to know WHAT we believe and WHY we believe it
We do not want to be at the mercy of people with corrupt doctrine that damages genuine faith.
“Don’t let others spoil your faith and joy with their philosophies,
their wrong and shallow answers built on men’s thoughts and ideas,
instead of what Christ has said.”
Colossians 2:8 (Living Bible)
We need to have an answer for those who have genuine questions
Have you ever had someone ask you a question about the Bible you could not answer? Or been silent in a discussion, aware of your lack of Biblical knowledge? It doesn't have to be this way. God gave us this inspired Book to help us understand His Will and His Ways. Our part is to correctly analyze, accurately handle, and skillfully teach the Word of Truth (2 Timothy 2:15 Amplified Bible).
Our Children Are Especially at Risk
They receive very little Biblical training these days. We have to be able to answer their questions. We must share God's principles with them. It is not enough to rear socially acceptable children. God wants us to raise Godly children. We need to know the Bible to do that.
