Inviting our neighbors to discover, enjoy, and share the life Jesus offers… Together.

    How do I study the Bible? [Bible, part 3 /3]

    How do I study the Bible? [Bible, part 3 /3]

    How can we know, and even be confident, that when we read the biblical writings we’re actually understanding them and “getting it right?” The solution isn’t to give up or just settle for someone else telling us what they think they mean… but to begin using some basic guidelines and tools to interpret the biblical writings for ourselves.

    Should we really do what the Bible says? [Bible, pt 2 / 3]

    Should we really do what the Bible says? [Bible, pt 2 / 3]

    Honestly, it seems that doing “what the Bible says” can mean just about whatever anyone wants it to mean. So what do we do? How do we read, understand, and even use the Bible properly and not just use it to justify whatever we want?

    How do I make sense of the bible? [Bible, pt 1 / 3]

    How do I make sense of the bible? [Bible, pt 1 / 3]

    The Bible is the most read, impactful, misunderstood, and misused set of writings in history. But for almost 2000 years reading and teaching what is in this collection of writings has been at the heart of what it means to follow Jesus. So what’s the deal? Do they even apply to us now thousands of years after they were first written and if so, how can we make any sense of them?

    What about my failures? [Discovering, pt 6 / 6]

    What about my failures? [Discovering, pt 6 / 6]

    What does it take for God to be done with us? When does God finally give up on, not only using us for something good, but even seeing us being worth the effort to keep around and keep forgiving? The truth is ridiculous, illogical, and amazing.

    Does God accept me? [Discovering, pt 5 / 6]

    Does God accept me? [Discovering, pt 5 / 6]

    Everyone wants to know they are accepted for who they really are. But so often, we are told to conform, clean up, and change if we want to be accepted. Is God the same way? Or is his acceptance something completely different… something completely better?

    What does God think about my doubts? [Discovering, pt 4/6]

    What does God think about my doubts? [Discovering, pt 4/6]

    We all have questions and doubts about God. Unfortunately organized religion isn’t always accepting of skeptics and freethinkers. But what if God is big enough to handle our questions and doubts. What if he isn’t bothered or annoyed by our questions but actually invites them. What if it’s in our questions that we discover what God actually thinks about us?
