You are so right. Every Christian believer needs MORE study of God's Word, the Bible. That is why you will see so many of us in weekly corporate Bible study groups. We are eager to learn more about God's Word. And, I am convinced that the best way to learn and grow more mature in His Word is to have frequent discussions with others.
While it is always good to have Bible discussions -- both one-on-one and corporate -- with other Christian believers -- it is also productive to have such discussions with non-believers.
There are two benefits to having discussions with non-believers. First, in these discussions, we are sharing God's Word with one or more who is not yet a believers. And, in such discussions, we Christian believers have to check and double-check our facts before speaking.
I cannot tell you how much I have learned over the past five years through my dialogues with folks on this Religion Forum. And, you, Chick, have been a great inspiration and help to me. For this, I thank you.
You tell me, "You should find someone to help you."
Are you volunteering? If so, I accept. I would love to have one-on-one, or public, discussions with you on Biblical issues. So, what will it be -- PM or on the Religion Forum?
God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,
