How Jesus Saves / How to Read the Bible
How Jesus Saves – David Aikman authored the book, A Man of Faith, The Spiritual Journey of George W. Bush. It’s profoundly clear that for President Bush, becoming a Christian has been a rather long spiritual journey. There have been people in the history of faith who have had a Damascus Road experience. Most don’t. It is fascinating, and encouraging, that while George Bush has described himself as having accepted Christ as his personal Savior, and as being born again, the President and the White House stopped using those terms. It’s encouraging because they made the change to get away from the jargon that Christian people are accustomed to using among themselves and which is meaningless to outsiders. Learn how Christians have seriously hindered their efforts by hiding their faith behind slogans such as “Jesus saves.”
How to Read the Bible – Is it dangerous for us to bring our own selves to the allegories of the Bible and interpret it in terms we can relate? Yes. Tornadoes, earthquakes, and tidal waves are dangerous, too, but we live in a world where we have to deal with them. It is in allowing each of us to bring ourselves to a parable or allegory that God allows one person to get the point while another misses it completely. If your worldview is based on a systematic reading of the Bible, you will understand the parable in a way that you could not without it. If your lifestyle includes an adulterous affair, then you are likely to interpret the parable in such a way that it will not condemn you. Learn from Ronald L. Dart, the teacher of teachers, how the truth is in the Bible, but only for those who are willing to accept it. This Born to Win program can transform the way you read and understand the Bible.
