MISSION - Share My Biblical Lessons and Bible Study Memes 
 

Purpose

The primary purpose of this site is to provide free printable Bible study lessons to educate people of all levels of spiritual growth and to motivate them to read and study the Word of God.  It focuses on many of today’s controversial issues that some pastors are afraid to address.   

  

Many people say the Bible is “open to interpretation.”  I believe this statement is absolutely false.  The Bible has only one interpretation - the rest are misinterpretations.  It is our job to find the correct interpretation.  Proper interpretation involves recognizing context and figures of speech such as metaphors, hyperbole, analogies, and allegories, Above all. one must be open minded and have the help of the Holy Spirit.  One must be careful to read what the Bible actually says and not what one thinks it says.  Scripture says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding" (Pro 3:5 NASB)
I believe some people often misinterpret the Bible to get people to believe that the Bible says something different than the words and the context dictate.  The best way to check oneself is to try to prove yourself wrong.  Remember, the Bible cannot contradict itself.  I do not believe that the Bible is out of date.  God gave his message to last until the Second Coming.  The idea that the Bible is full of errors does not give God very much credit.  God does not try to fool us or require us to know Greek or have a degree in theology to understand his will.  If a church doctrine explains something better than Jesus did, then red flags should go up. 

 

Lessons

These lessons often expose the differences between the wisdom of men and the wisdom of the only true God who created all mankind and the entire universe.  Lessons are ideal for both individual and group Bible study.  These lessons are not typical Bible study lessons.  They do not start with the Bible but do end up there.  They are subjective, not line by line verse study.  People often hear the same Bible stories lessons preached over and over again, but these lessons emphasize scriptures that are often ignored or taken out of context.  My comments and opinions are based on my thorough study of relevant scriptures.  I may not have all the answers, but I ask the important questions and get one to face the important issues that affect one’s faith and salvation.  

 

This site takes various specific subjects, and then relates them to Scriptures.  Each lesson has an introduction to ease into the subject.  The main lesson is then presented with numerous scriptures for the reader to study and discuss.  A summary then focuses on the main aspects of the lesson.  Finally, a thought-provoking review section is given with questions and comments about the lesson.  This review section will lead one to use the concepts learned in the lesson to help impact the lives of the people around them.

To everyone on this page, I recommend that you later read the whole Bible if you have not recently done so.  Hopefully, this book will motivate and enable you to better understand the Bible.  Moreover, knowing the Bible will put your ideas in the proper context of God’s total message to humanity.

 

This site is also an excellent tool for Sunday school classes or for Bible study groups.  The beauty of these lessons is they are designed to be used without a typical teacher.  These lessons do not require a teaching manual or extensive advance preparation.  A Bible study group should obviously have a leader.  The group leader is more of a facilitator than a teacher.  There should always be at least one person in the group who understands the Bible, so that discussion is based on Biblical context.  This person with Biblical knowledge may or may not be the leader who facilitates the lessons.

The idea of having a knowledgeable person in attendance is important in any Bible study group, but I know that many times this does not happen.  Having a qualified person in the group is a principle taught by Christ in the book of Luke:  

Luke 6:39-40…..“He also told them this parable: ‘Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.’”

 

Unless stated otherwise, the Scriptural translations are from the NIV (New International Version) 1984 edition.  As of 2021 the NASB seems to be my favorite.  The KJV is not my favorite for reasons explained in my one lesson.  Many of the Scriptures are written, but each person should have his or her own Bible to look up any other Scriptures that are referenced.  If only the number of the Scripture is listed, then group members might volunteer to take turns reading each Scripture from the Bible, or the group could select a designated reader.  As with any Bible study, one must study Scripture in the context of the verse, the chapter, the testament, and the whole Bible.

A big advantage of these lessons is that they do not have a timeline.  Since the lessons are not dated, one can start the series at any time.  Many of the lessons can be completed in one week, but some may take several weeks.  One can spend as much time on each lesson as the group desires.  The wild card here is discussion.  This book is designed to be thought provoking.  Subsequently, there should be lots of group discussion. 

The questions in the review section are by no means meant to suggest that discussion should not happen at any other time during the lesson.  All lessons are designed to encourage spontaneous discussion throughout the lesson.  Limiting discussion defeats an important aspect of this book.  My suggestion is to just study each lesson and not worry about the time.

All the lessons are created to be informative and unique.  These lessons will teach people the Biblical principles regarding many controversial subjects.   After studying these lessons, one should better understand the difference between popular opinion and Biblical truth.  Remember; proper interpretation of a difficult concept involves trying to prove oneself wrong. 

Memes 

Hundreds of my own memes designed specifically for evangelizing biblical beliefs.  These memes are specifically great for emphasizing concepts taught in the lessons.   Many of these memes are tongue-in-cheek and provocative to induce a discussion or debate in social media. 

Summary

This site should help one better explain to others what it really means to follow Christ.  Consequently, I try not to add any manmade doctrines or theories. but expose beliefs that are not in the Bible.  It is, of course, a sin to add or subtract anything to God' Word.  We are to accept what the Bible actually says, not what we or others understand it to say. 

  • Pro 3:5 NIV...... Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

  • Rev 22:18-19 NIV...... I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.  And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.​            

May God be with you and may God's Spirit guide you in your study.
