As a Christian have you ever studied the bible to check your beliefs?
The scriptures tell us to test ALL things to see if they be of God. Have you ever sat down with your bible and the Holy Spirit and studied to see if what you believe is scripturally sound? I dont mean tried to make your beliefs fit, I mean sincerely looking for truth. What did you find? Did you find some of what you had been taught was not scriptural? if so what & What did you do about it?
I read the bible old and new testaments but I don't understand any of them.
I just read because I promised that I would, still I couldn't find anything that relate to my daily life .
Just don't want to go astray, that's all
pp- i can help you if you wish. send me an email from this site and
i will send you a book that helps to understand. Then you can get born again and filled with Holy Spirit and then you can understand all of it correctly as the HS will reveal it
You are wise for reading and studying your Bible, because this is something God wants us to. The scripture at Acts 17:11 reminds me of you. There, the ancient Boreans examined their scriptural writings daily to make sure of what they were learning.
The Ethiopian Eunuch was reading an account from the Scriptures concerning Jesus Christ, but he was lacking understanding of what he was reading, so God's angel spoke to Phillip and directed him to speak to this humble Ethiopian Eunuch. God used His holy spirit and Philip to help this person to fully grasp what he was reading. Jehovah's Witnesses are the only group I know of that thoroughly and accurately know and understand God's Word. I've been a JW since 1980 and I have never looked back. We use the Bible as our sole source of authority and if secular references support the teachings of God's Word that's an added plus.....Another thing, learning to reason and meditate on God's Word is critical so as to sound down God's Word in our heart and mind.
With that said, this account teaches us that assistance from others can help us navigate through the Bible and help us to pinpoint certain scriptures that can assist us with our concerns, challenges, anxieties, specific problems, and discouragement. The Bible also can encourage us and help us to draw closer to God (James 4:8) (Acts 8:26-40)
The Scriptures also help us to see that the whole Bible is beneficial for all things (2nd Timothy 3:16,17).

If Christianity really is the truth, shouldn't scrutiny demonstrate its truth?All over the place in America, we see believers responding with outrage and defiance when Christian beliefs are challenged or questioned. If the beliefs of Christianity are, in fact, the truth - the only truth, then...

How important is biblical literacy? If we don't understand the origin or inspiration of great cultural works, will it still be possible to appreciate them? If not, have we lost something of value? Like many others who've posted here, I was raised Christian. I want my kids to...

WHY do you believe in God?Not stuff like "he is loving and great" or anything like that. I'm looking for specific reasons why you choose to believe in a god and be a part of religion.

Christians have killed again and again in the name of their god. Does this mean we should stop a christian from running for the presidency?"Because Christians believe that Jesus Christ suffered for the sins of others, they use this belief for their own purposes by "letting Christ suffer...
