  • 13. “Bible  reading  has  become  the  religious  equivalent  of   sound-­‐bite  journalism.  When  people  read  from  the   Bible  they  typically  open  it,  read  a  brief  passage   without  much  regard  for  the  context,  and  consider   the  primary  thought  or  feeling  that  the  passage   provided.  If  they  are  comfortable  with  it,  they  accept   it;  otherwise,  they  deem  it  interesting  but  irrelevant   to  their  life,  and  move  on.  There  is  shockingly  little   growth  evident  in  people’s  understanding  of  the   fundamental  themes  of  the  scriptures  and  amazingly   little  interest  in  deepening  their  knowledge  and   application  of  biblical  principles  .  .  .   https://www.barna.org/barna-­‐update/article/12-­‐faithspirituality/325-­‐barna-­‐ studies-­‐the-­‐research-­‐offers-­‐a-­‐year-­‐in-­‐review-­‐perspective#.UinrSRaTy0s  
  • 14. “The  problem  facing  the  Christian  Church  is  not   that  people  lack  a  complete  set  of  beliefs;  the   problem  is  that  they  have  a  full  slate  of  beliefs  in   mind,  which  they  think  are  consistent  with   biblical  teachings,  and  they  are  neither  open  to   being  proven  wrong  nor  to  learning  new  insights.   Our  research  suggests  that  this  challenge  initially   emerges  in  the  late  adolescent  or  early  teenage   years  .  .  .  In  a  culture  driven  by  the  desire  to   receive  value,  more  Bible  teaching  is  generally  not   viewed  as  an  exercise  in  providing  such  value.” https://www.barna.org/barna-­‐update/article/12-­‐faithspirituality/325-­‐barna-­‐ studies-­‐the-­‐research-­‐offers-­‐a-­‐year-­‐in-­‐review-­‐perspective#.UinrSRaTy0s  
  • 15. ✦ We will not believe more than we know, and we will not live higher than our beliefs. ✦ The many fronts of Christian compromise in this generation can be directly traced to biblical illiteracy in the pews and the absence of biblical preaching and teaching in our homes and churches.
  • 16. 2 Timothy 4:1–5 (NKJV) 1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
  • 17. ✦ The Home – Deut. 6:7-9; 2 Tim. 1:5; 3:14,15; Eph. 6:1-4 ✦ The Pulpit – Jonah 3:2; Acts 17:1-3; 2 Tim. 4:2-5; 1 Pet 4:11 ✦ Sectarianism – Mat. 15:7-9; 2 Tim. 4:3,4; Gal 1:6-9; John 17:20,21 ✦ Emotionalism – John 6:44,45; Titus 2:11,12; Gal. 5:22-24 ✦ Sensationalism – Acts 8:9; 1 Cor. 1:18-23; 2:1-5 ✦ Unconcern – Mat. 24:12; Mat 6:24; 1 Cor. 16:22; Mark 8:36-38
  • 18. ✦ In Our Homes – Eph 6:1-4 ✦ In Our Pulpits & Churches – 2 Tim 4:1-4 ✦ As Being Our ONLY STANDARD!! – 2 Tim 3:16,17 ✦ Molding & Controlling Our Thoughts & Lives! - 2 Cor. 10:3-5 ✦ Obeying from the heart – Rom 6:16-18 ✦ As Being Something For Which We Hunger & Thirst – Psalm 119:97-104
  • 19. ✦ Josiah sought the Lord as a young man – ✦ When Josiah found the truth he allowed it to change him – he did not try to change it!! ✦ Maybe you need to find the word of God!! ✦ Maybe you have found the truth but have yet to act upon it – don’t wait any longer!! ✦ Are you helping others find the truth?
