In my life as a Christian I want to only believe what is true and what lines up with God's word - if someone can show me that my beliefs are wrong according to God's word than I plan on listening. I hope that you too respect God's word and are willing to believe that over any teaching of man or any tradition that you might have grown up with.
I am looking forward to this becoming a discussion. I welcome any thoughts or questions. If you disagree with me I would love to hear why (respectfully of course).
Here is some of the reasons that I am motivated to study once again on what I believe....
~I want to always be ready to answer those that might have questions. To do this I need to study God's word regularly so that I don't forget why I believe certain things.
"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,"
1 Peter 3:15
~I know God's word has the answers and will help me and you in life.
"All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right."
2 Timothy 3:16
~I want to be able to teach and ready to gently instruct so that sinners may come to repentance.
