Bible Challenge 2008 - Week 3

Week 3

We are building on a solid foundation!

Our commitment to reading, hearing, and acting on the Word of God “is like a sensible man who built his house on the rock.” And when the culture hounds us to change and conform, our faith won’t “collapse, because its foundation was on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24-27)

Praise God! Keep up the good work.

Tuesday --- Matthew 12
Wednesday --- Matthew 13
Thursday --- Matthew 14
Friday --- Matthew 15

“Colson believes the root of the church’s problem is that Christians don’t know what they believe in.

‘I think that is at the heart of the problem of the church – we replaced truth with therapy,’ he said.

‘Most people are basically ignorant,’ he said referring to believers’ lack of knowledge on their own religion. . .

Knowing what Christianity is and its belief is important as Christians are confronted by social challenges such as genetic engineering, Islamic fascism, and a more aggressive atheism.

Colson said that he begins each morning with a New York Times newspaper on one side and the Bible other the other side so that as a Christian he could ‘look at everything in life through a Biblical prism.’

‘We have to always compare what the Bible says and what culture says,’ he advised.”

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
