One of the most important duties of a Christian is reading God’s Word. Unfortunately, we’re not always as consistent with reading and studying the Scriptures like we ought to be. Even still, though, the only thing worse than not reading your Bible is to read it wrongly.
Welcome to another edition of “Links I Like,” a weekly roundup of news, stories, and links that have impacted me throughout the past week.
I’ve said before on this blog that the only thing worse than not reading your Bible is to read it incorrectly. It’s crucial to know the context of the scene and the age of the culture to know why something was said or done. Interpreting stories from the past with biases from the present is not only foolish, it sets you up for a bevy of revisionist history that doesn’t see the full picture.
Hello there! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my little corner of the Internet. Here’s another volume of links that I like and that had some sort of impact on me this past week. Enjoy!
A sermon from Luke 24:13-27.
Commentary upon Psalm 119:25-32.
There’s a pervading fallacy in Christendom that’s been left to fester for far too many years. I believe, among other issues, this is one of the chief problems that plague Christians. I’m speaking, of course, on how we read our Bibles. You’d think this privilege of God’s beloved to read their Lord’s words would garner more attention and would be the supreme aspect one learns growing up. But it’s not, and, therefore, generations of redeemed believers have grown up, and are now functioning adults, but don’t know how to read their Bibles.
