How To Study The Bible for Yourself - Tim LaHaye

How to Study the Bible - Getting it on the Inside!

I seemed to have a bit of a block when it came to actually studying the Bible.

I had read it twice, cover to cover and was becoming familiar with it, knowing where certain scripture was and even how to apply it in my life, but getting to the point of actually wanting to study the Bible seemed to be something a bit distant.  

Until I read the twelve Left Behind books.

In June 2013 I purchased the book How to Study the Bible for Yourself - All I can say is WOW...

How our money damages our relationship with God, but not how you think!

I believe that money is the single most contentious and destructive element that exists throughout the Christian faith

How our money damages our relationship with God, but not how you think!

Since the beginning of time, there has always been a problem between man, money and God. Whenever a pastor or minister begins to address finances, the shutters come up.

It is widely believed that the Church is only after everyone's money. They're reluctant to give it away and in respect of the Church of England and the Catholic Church they're never far away from some financial scandal or complaint when it comes to cash.

How do worship songs affect us?

Is it right to sing Matt Redman's Blessed be the name of the Lord?

How do worship songs affect us?

When life “hit’s the fan”, the Church regularly turns us to the Book of Job to supposedly help comfort us, however, it seems to me that there’s a mismatch of messages. Are we really supposed to be comforted by the Book of Job or are we being “left in the lurch” for the sake of entertainment?

We immediately blame it on the economy like everyone else does.

How Can Christianity Help if I'm Drowning!

Being a Christian can be a real challenge, especially as we’re constantly at odds with the rest of the world. No more so when it comes to applying our faith to difficult situations in business.

How can a non-Christian acknowledge or accept they're lost or know that being 'saved' really means?

What will it take for us to stop listening to celebrities and find out for ourselves what it means to be saved

How can a non-Christian acknowledge or accept they're lost or know that being 'saved' really means?

I recently heard a talk by Nancy Alcorn of Mercy Ministries describing the lost...

There are many sheep in Australia and towards the end of the day typically we would see one sheep with his head down eating grass and the rest of the sheep have walked away and are then taken to an enclosure. The lone sheep eating, lifts up its head, can't see all the other sheep and says to itself, "oh I'm lost".

It's the same with people who are busy doing their lives, working, learning, looking after the children and so on, that when they look up day to say oh I'm lost!

Four Elements to Faith

We don't over complicate faith, we know that there are four things we are expected to do....

Ask for Wisdom

Pray and ask God for Wisdom to do the right thing.

Lay on Hands

We are to lay hands on the sick and they will be healed.

Cast Out Demons

We have the power to bind up and cast out demons.

Make Disciples

Get baptised, receive the Holy Spirit and pass it on.
