Doctrine: Unlocking The Bible For All It’s Worth
7:30pm, at the Shekinah Centre. In an age where any and every theory and teaching on religion and faith can readily be accessed via the internet Jesus’ words regarding what we input into our hearts, minds and lives couldn’t have starker meaning. How do we navigate all the claims and counter claims, all the theories about the bible, all the various teachings about Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Church not to mention everything else? The only way is to have our faith and understanding anchored firmly in what the bible clearly teaches, not what we would like it to say, not what fits neatly into our experience or our culture. These are challenging times, Paul said to Timothy, ‘The time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.’ (2 Tim 4:3-4) I fear that we are living in the days which fulfil this scripture. The challenge is are we so used to what is happening in our time that we are not equipping ourselves to prevent us wandering from the word of truth? These sessions are committed to anchoring us in the great eternal truths of scripture.
