Over the past couple of years, our study group has read some amazing, challenging material, from Steven Furtick’s Sun Stand Still and Dr. Craig’s On Guard to John Eldredge’s Beautiful Outlaw. While these were all wonderful and eye-opening, there is simply no replacing the fulfillment that comes from reading the Word of God. The soul craves it, gets thirsty for it.
And so, our study group has decided to dive back into the Bible itself with a beta study. Bible X is to meant to help its students understand their faith more fully by piecing together our story from Genesis to Revelation. It’s a big commitment that will take our group about a year to complete. If we can minimize the digressing. 😀
Session 1 of Module 1 begins this week, and we go all the way back to Creation. After all, God so loved his creation that he gave …
When we have finished this study, I hope we’ll be able to tell the world, “We believe this, and this is why we believe it.” And then if it becomes necessary, we can always pull out On Guard and argue it logically. 😉

Wake us, Lord!
