I grew up hearing a lot about the Bible. I enjoyed Sunday School as a child and Bible camps as a young adult. Later in my education, my views on the Bible were challenged as academics conveyed to me... More > their own beliefs, that the Bible was changed or that it had been used to justify too many horrible things.
This journey left me with a lot of questions. Where did the BIble come from? How could I understand the Bible better? Why is it so hard to live the way the Bible commands.. and why don’t I experience God in the same way that the Bible describes?
These questions drove me to a deeper revelation: all our studies of the Scripture are to lead us to be brighter and more Spirit-filled believers that are transformed into the image of Christ.
In short, Bible study should make us brilliant - not only in the academic way - but also brilliantly burning for God.< Less
