|THE PURE WORD OF GOD|
Please help me with this. I had a couple of experiences where I attended (not as a regular attendee) Bible studies where they used books authored by Christians as main Bible study material as opposed to the Holy Bible. I did not inquire of the people there but inwardly I wondered, "If this is Bible study why are they NOT using the Bible to study?" My expectation is that when I go to Bible studies, the Bible should be the main study material. I am fine with hand-outs that are used to study WITH the Bible but to NOT mainly use the Bible at Bible studies bothers me. I wonder if GOD is pleased. Perhaps to some I am
over-reacting but I feel very strongly about the matter.
Yes, the Christian author's do have scripture citations in their books. And I have read some great books authored by excellent Christian authors. But in Bible study, I firmly believe in Bible usage as the main study material.
Please express your views. I do need help with this...
Thank you for your indulgence.
