event description

Many people find the “bible” not only difficult to read but also somewhat difficult to understand. It contains many passages, concepts, ideas, writing techniques, and devices that leave even most lettered “bible” scholars puzzled. This may be why so few “Christians” and others read their “bible” consistently and understand its contents. While America’s “Christians” seem to be most concerned about such secular worldview’s and matters such as abortion, capital punishment, immigration and other trivial issues, perhaps an issues in more urgent need of attention and much closer to home is issue of “biblical illiteracy.” How can you portend to be a “Christian” if you don’t read or understand its most fundamental text?

Researchers George Gallup and Jim Castelli put the problem right up-front stating, “Americans (see “Christians” revere the “bible” – but by and large they do not read it. . . Because they don’t read it, they don’t know what is in it. . . And because they don’t know what is in it, they have become a nation of ‘biblical illiterates’.” According to research, fewer than half of all adults “Christians” can name the four gospels. Many “Christians” cannot identify more than two or three of the disciples. 60% of Americans (see “Christians” surveyed cannot name 5 of the 10 commandments.

But don’t worry. . .help is on the way!

If you are attending a church and feel like the whole “church” experience is leaving you unsatisfied? Perhaps you’ve become tired of the way ‘traditional’ “church” is done, but still would like to study the “bible” and to learn more about it? Maybe you are involved in a “bible” study now but don’t feel as those you are really learning or growing. Or maybe you are not be in a “church” right now at all? It’s possible that you have been trying to study the “bible” on your own at home, and it is just not making sense? Its likely that you are like one of those individuals mentioned in the study above who simply cannot answer any of those questions because you haven’t done your homework? If any of these are your situation – then “The Gathering” bible study is for you! What better way to jump into the New Year?
