  • I usually have them turn to the passage that they have a question about, and then help them try to understand the verses in context. Usually that helps them understand and answers their questions about the Bible. If I know correlating Scripture that can help someone better understand the passage they are questioning, then I'll have them turn to that passage as well. Scripture will explain Scripture, and we should be studied up and ready to help our younger brothers and sisters in Christ learn them.
  • I think helping to teach people to go to the Word and the Father on their own is a great thing but that, I believe, should be demonstrated by us as we answer their questions. We can show them how to go to the Father and to find their way around the Word. On matters that the church is divided on I have told people where to go in the Word without giving my opinion on the matter because I believe that the Word is powerful and can shed light and convict hearts without my help on such things. Those tools are wonderful Vern and I use them all but I don't believe they are necessary to study the Word that is living and powerful and promises to never return empty. I like Derek's thoughts about dealing with a new Christian.
  • I think answering, "Ask Abba" is a lazy person;s get out. One of the things that we are charged to make disciples of all people. We make no disciples if we just tell them to go read the Bible, or go away and pray about, they maybe a new Christian that has never prayed before, people who are searching need to be nertured and if we don't know the answer, admit it, and go away and find the answer.
  • 2 Timothy 2:15 King James Version (KJV)
    15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    You only need five books to study the bible:
    1. A King James bible. Other versions are ok, but the KJV has been stable for 400 years and the others have not.
    2. An English dictionary.
    3. An Interlinear Greek-English Translation Of The New Testament, any brand.
    4. An exhaustive concordance. There are several brands, but everybody seems to use Strong’s. I like Young’s because it is easier to use.
    5. A Hebrew lexicon, if you study the old testament.

    A bible atlas will also be helpful, but you can get along without it. A book that is very good for getting started is “How To Enjoy The Bible” by E. W. Bullinger. You can get a hard copy at any bible book store, and there are several websites offering free downloads.

    Read a chapter of Proverbs every day. Proverbs has 31 chapters so you can keep your place by just looking at a calendar. There is no religion or nothing in Proverbs and you don’t have to believe anything. Just read to find comfort and confidence. When you are comfortable with that, then read the bible from Romans to 2 Thessalonians over and over until you start to remember what it says. That is the part that applies to Christians.
  • Yes, in the sense to pray to the heavenly father (Abba). I might answer their question myself if I know the answer.
