Focus on Jesus, Nothing Else

March 27, 2007

In the mail two days ago, I received two postcards for a Saturday night ‘Bible study’ called The Journey: Why Walk Alone. Neither postcard bothers to mention the Scriptures or God, rather they say they are ‘searching for answers together’ and trying to ‘do what we feel Jesus is asking of us’. On the front of one of the postcards, there is a store-front sign which says “Yes, we’re Open-Minded”. Open-minded to what? The whims and ideas of the world? That certainly is what the meaning implies.

My question is, what is the point of a Bible study if you don’t bother to mention the Bible, the Bible’s authority, the name of God, or the Gospel? Is this Bible study edifying? Is it truly going to study the Scriptures as the name implies? If they are, they aren’t doing a very good job.

    So true. We really are starting to see a lot of this. It’s sad.

    Your post also brought to mind something my Grandma used to say about my great-aunt Polly; “She was so opened-minded that everything fell out!”
