Structure of Website
This site contains three types of documents
Articles relate to a particular subject, theme or Bible term
Generally, the article attempts to list relevant verses and
summarize, highlight, emphasize or contextualize what the verses are saying
The articles are a useful reference when assembling a
message or a study
The articles try to be fairly comprehensive and generally list
all occurrences of a particular word in the bible if the article is looking at
the way the Bible uses particular terms. As the Bible was written in Greek
(NT) and Hebrew (OT) and has been translated into English, this is not always
easy as one Greek or Hebrew word can have several English equivalents and visa
versa. In some cases, it is necessary to have a detailed look at the Greek
in order to understand how a particular word or 'Term' is used in the Bible.
(eg the word for receive)
When looking at a particular theme or subject, the article
tries to list all the relevant verses and examine what they are saying.
Synonymous or related terms (with similar meaning) are sometimes dealt with in
the same article.
Bible studies are non didactic, interactive and have been
written for people coming together from different backgrounds. The leader
should not be directive or insist on a particular interpretation or view.
Studies are in a question and answer format. There is
often more than one way to answer a question.
Studies allow people to consider the material presented and
the different views expressed and come to their own conclusions.
Leaders should allow the Holy Spirit to do the correcting and
People should feel welcome and accepted, whatever their views.
It is good that they have come along and that they are willing to listen to and
consider other people's views. Nobody should force their view on anybody,
even if the other person is not a Christian. You cannot force somebody to
be a Christian or change their theology.
Messages are opportunities for people to express their views.
It is OK to be didactic and have a view which is different to those who are
listening as long as they have invited you to speak.
Messages are therefore quite didactic and express a particular
view with no apology to those who are differently persuaded. The audience
has invited you to speak. They want to know what you have to say.
The audience can then take it or leave it. They can
either accept what you say or reject it.
Ideally, the message should be firmly grounded in God's word
and guided by the Spirit.
The sheep know the Shepherd's voice.
If they don't like what you have to say, they don't have to
invite you back again.
