New Online Bible Study Lessons Unlock the Mystery to Life?s Crucial Questions


Milford, Ohio (PRWEB) November 27, 2009

Humankind has always had questions about life, such as where do we come from, why we are here, and what does the future hold for us and the world? For many, the Bible holds the answer to these and other mysteries of life, but the problem is that the Bible itself can be challenging to read and understand. Even many bible study lessons themselves are difficult to comprehend. The United Church of God has a mission, which is to announce to the world the teachings of Jesus Christ. Further, the Church desires to prepare those that receive the gospel for the Kingdom of God. Understanding that many people have difficulty comprehending the true meaning of God’s Word; the Church has gone to great efforts to create bible study lessons that are designed to alleviate any misunderstandings. The lessons are available online at www.ucg.org/bible-study/bible-study-lessons.htm, allowing for worshipers to study at their own pace, from the ease and comfort of their own homes.

Although Christians believe that the Bible can, in fact, solve mysteries about life in general and even help in their personal endeavors, many people are confused by biblical scripture. Because the United Church of God wants so desperately to assist others with their journey and exploration of the Bible, they not only offer online bible study lessons, but they are provided free of charge. The lessons are provided in a 12-part series which can be downloaded or read online. The online bible study begins with a basic lesson about why the Bible is the Word of God. The third lesson explores the issue of why God created mankind, and lesson four deals with the controversial topic of why God allows suffering. The bible study lessons help to make the teachings of the Bible clearer and more applicable to today’s world, and therefore, to the life of the one using the online bible study.

The United Church of God also offers publications that can assist with the online bible study lessons. A favorite resource is their book, “How To Understand The Bible,” which teaches that one of the keys to understanding the Bible is approaching it with the right frame of mind: a respect for the fact that the Bible is God’s divine revelation to us.

The book offers tips that also can help with online bible study, including the list of keys for understanding the Bible, including: accept the inspiration of all the Bible, plan time for regular bible study lessons, let the Bible interpret itself and compare different translations.

The Relationship Between Jesus Christ & Bible

The Relationship Between Jesus Christ & Bible

As we grow older, we adopt actual patterns of building. Some people take the pieces that they’re handed, and try, the best they can, to fit them all together. Others are more proactive and selective. They patiently search for just the right building materials, planning carefully, down to the finest detail. It’s doubtful, however that most people give much thought to the foundation that everything will be built upon.

 

Foundations in a physical building are mostly underground. What can be seen is often unsightly. Unless there are obvious shifts and cracks, the average home owner may pay little attention, other than to paint or conceal them from view.

 

Structural improvements made to the foundation offer little, in the way of immediate reward. They may seem unworthy of any cost that might be incurred. Time and money are usually devoted to projects bringing more immediate pleasure. It’s much easier to get excited about additions, renovations, or even redecorating projects. Structural integrity in the foundation often goes unnoticed, and is vastly unappreciated until the time comes that it is tested.

 

When it comes to life, you are not only the “home owner,” but also the contractor. Any wise and conscientious contractor knows how essential the integrity of the foundation is. Improper foundations are sure to crack and give way under the weight of the structure and the pressure of adverse environmental conditions. “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3).

 

There are three essential ingredients to a healthy and purposeful life. They are:

 

– A God-centered sense of self-worth

– A God-centered sense of security

– A God centered sense of significance

 

These three essential ingredients are like the three legs of a stool. If one is shortened or removed, everything else becomes unstable. Without them we become needy and begin to grope for people and things to fill the perceived void in our lives.

 

These three life-pillars are not formed accidentally. They must be shaped intentionally and they can only be done so when there is a solid foundation in place to form them upon. A proper foundation is essential to structural integrity that can support growth.

 

The Lord loves us so much that He does not want to see us build a magnificent LOOKING life upon a faulty foundation. Our free will allows us to do so if we want to, but God allows tests that are designed to draw our attention towards these structural weaknesses.

 

It’s better to experience a crack or “cave in” before much of the house is built then for these faults to go unchallenged. Obviously, damages and subsequent costs are directly proportionate to the size and splendor of what is built upon the foundations when pressure is applied.

 

There is only one immoveable foundation upon which to build our self-worth, security, and significance. This is the basis and foundation of all true relationship.

 

Jesus Christ is the only unshakable foundation

 

“According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire, 1 Corinthians 3:10-15.”

 

This means that Christ is not content being part of our lives. He wants our lives to be completely built upon our faith in Him.

Did the Roman Catholic Church give us our Bible? (zkueker88)

Many Roman Catholics claim that the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) produced the Bible (God’s Word) to which they do not use very often… The truth is that the Roman Catholic Church did not give us our Bible. Rather, we got our Bible from the Holy Spirit through the apostles before the Catholic Church was romanized. Please see CARM www.carm.org
