Any Interest in a Forum Bible Study

Recommended Posts

I would most certainly appreciate a good Bible study. I would only, however, be a "consistent observer". Thank you very much for the offer, it is indeed a good one. Maybe, since you suggested keeping it short for this first study, perhaps one of Paul's shorter epistles?

Sister Linda, (I pray that I am understanding the name correctly -- "busdrvrlinda54")

I have also thought that one of the shorter New Testament epistle would be appropriate.  Yet we shall see how the Holy Spirit might guide through other suggestions.

Pastor Markle--yes please! And as a consistent observer. And I might suggest some sort of passage about how, as believers, we interact with a local church. But equally I'd be happy for it to be about some other topic/passage that we haven't much discussed on the forum of late and I see there have been suggestions already.

Thank you, all, for the interest expressed thus far, and for the various suggestions.

Please understand that I do not intend to begin the Bible study immediately (with the next two days); for I do not desire to "rush past" the guidance of the Holy Spirit, but rather to pray for a time over the matter of the appropriate passage (in accord with the various suggestions).

I've been chatting with Ronda. She is currently locked out of the forum and we are working on getting it reversed. But she wanted me to let you know she is very interested in a study. Maybe on Heaven? or Hell? or even the characteristics of God?

You can certainly count me in and I'll contribute as much as I can. As far as topic, I don't have a preference at the moment. I like to study just about everything, though I think it'd be wise if we stay away from prophecy for the first go-around.

I also will commit to reading  2 & 3 John two times every day for the next 14 days. (If for any reason I am unable to sit upright and read, I will listen to the KJV audio bible on http://www.hilltopbaptistnewport.net/ListenToTheKingJamesBible.html (which is free, although there are a few missing files and skipping passages, I don't think any were in 2 & 3 John, I think they were in Geneses and both 1 & 2 Corinthians and possible others).  I won't bring up (in this study) my thoughts on Pauline doctrine... but I do want to clarify that I also read/study ALL of the bible, not JUST the Pauline epistles. There is wisdom and truth which can be applicable to ALL dispensations throughout ALL of the Bible... and I won't add anything further on that line of discussion, so as not to disrupt the study. :) 

Thank you so much for your time devoted to this study. God bless you and guide you in your leading of this group, and may we all benefit by learning, fellowship, and growing (in Christ).

Sister Ronda,

I did understand this truth concerning you -- that you study ALL for the Biblical wisdom and truth that may be found therein.

I also thank you for your consideration in this regard.  On my part, I simply presented my note above in order that all might know the direction from which I would approach the study, and in order to prevent in advance a controversy that might distract from the study itself.

If you or another does desire to discuss this particular matter of disagreement, I am open to doing so in an "other" thread for that purpose.

I will commit to the reading schedule as well.  Will we postpone discussion until the completion of the two weeks of reading and study?  Where will the discussion be posted and will the thread be restricted to only those of us who have committed to the study?

Brother Garry,

The discussion thread for the Bible study itself has not yet been started.  I will start it after the two weeks of the reading commitment time with the title -- "A Bible Study on 2 & 3 John."  This would mean that we will indeed postpone any discussion until the completion of the reading commitment.  I intend this "postponement" specifically because I desire for the beginning of the reading commitment truly to be focused upon personal need, not upon forum comments.  

At this point, I do not intend to restrict the thread only to those who have committed to the study (not that I would have the power actually to do so).  However, I do intend, as much as I am able, to keep the Bible study thread focused upon the study itself.
