What Benefits Can I Expect To Derive From Studying The Bible?

Guy Roberson

Surveys have established that most people believe the Bible is the Word of God and contains the answers to the questions about life.  However, many people have never read the Bible and cannot answer basic questions regarding how to live to please God.

The Psalmist said, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” ...

Why We Should Study The Bible?

Why We Should Study The Bible?

Guy Roberson

Henry Ward Beecher said, “The BIBLE is God’s chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and to show you where the harbor is, and how to reach it without running on rocks and bars.”   Here in a few words Mr. Beecher pointed to an excellent reason to study the Bible.

The Bible is ...

Why Should We Attend Bible Classes?

It was the pattern of Paul’s missionary work to establish churches throughout the cities where he preached the gospel.  The Hebrew writer emphasized the importance of every believer being a part of a local body of Christians and why it is necessary:  “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the ...

Why Do Churches Have Bible Class

Welcome Back. We have Guy Roberson’s writing again. We will send these out on Monday of each week. Enjoy.

 The Scriptures describe local churches conducting regular meetings to worship God and study His Word (Acts 20:7; 11:26; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34; chap. 14; Hebrews 10:25).  This is because of the value of the Bible for every man, woman and child in the world.  Jesus said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not ...

I Will Pour Out My Spirit

It was not originally my intention to write another article on the subject of “water” after last month’s post on rivers. However, there is a bit more to this topic that I would like to share. So call this a two-part series, or call it another article on a similar topic. I’ll be happy either way.

If you will recall, in Ezekiel 40-48 the prophet had a vision of a perfect temple from which a trickle of water flowed. That trickle ...

Jesus And His Disciples

John chapter 6 contains a unique event. It contains the only miracle mentioned in all four gospels. So it seems to be extremely significant to the Gospel writers, and the Lord. Also, it is the only account where Jesus asked advice of someone else. Then, it is the only time Jesus performed a miracle before such a huge crowd. John 6 begins with these three words, “After these things…” When we read those words ask, “what things?” John’s account is ...

Command, Example, Inference: How Jesus Reasoned from Scripture (Part 2)

In my previous article I began thinking with you about a commonly held three-fold formula for discerning God’s will in Scripture: commands, examples, and inferences. To many disciples, this hermeneutical approach is contrived and distorts Scripture into a law-code that in turn produces a very legalistic version of Christianity. My primary objective in this series is to follow the example of Jesus, especially in regard to the way He reasoned from the Scriptures. But before I begin looking at the ...

Command, Example and Inference – How Jesus Reasoned from the Scriptures (1)

by Shane Scott

I grew up in a wonderful neighborhood with lots of great families. Since there were several kids my age on our street, summer nights were filled with all kinds of games. Kickball – dodgeball – baseball – you name it, we played it. The only problem that ever arose was when we disagreed about the rules. Was it three foul balls and you’re out or four? The worst arguments broke out when it appeared that someone was simply ...

Our Adversary

Make no mistake, the devil is our adversary. One of our great failings is we fail to recognize him as the adversary. Because we don’t see him and don’t deal with him directly we are not as impressed with his adversarial powers as we ought to be. One of the great lies Satan has sold is that he is the most formidable adversary. Satan is no match for God! God is greater (1John 4:4)! Do not diminish the ...
