Gary concludes his discussion with Pastor Richard Henry about popular "end-time" interpretations. The book of Revelation tells us that it is a book of "signs." Too often, popular writers try to make these signs "literal" in the sense of reality and not in the sense of the literature. Reading Revelation "literally" means reading it on its own first-century terms, not with a modern 21st century mindset.

We're told all the time that reading the Bible is important. Let's be honest though, the Bible can be a confusing book that doesn't feel relatable. But what if we change our view of it? Pastor Kevin Queen talks about the importance of intentional time in God's Word.
This week I wanted to talk to three people from an online group of Bible students. The argument I hear a lot is social media is largely dangerous. However, this group is doing something many thought impossible. I talk to Logan Dawson, Donna DeHoog and Katie Philippi about what they've learned and how they've gotten to know other Christians in a Chapter a Day Group (Excel Still More a Chapter a Day). See how they're becoming better Christians one chapter at a time.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/balancingthechristianlife)
Was the bible handed down from heaven by God, or did man have a hand in its creation? How did the ancient Israelites read their scripture and how should we read it today? These are questions that are often overlooked in our typical church gathering, but they are all too important in our ability to correctly read the Bible. Paul utilizes important strategies when reading/quoting scripture in his letters and the letter to the Romans is no exception. Paul touches on an important topic namely, Rejecting Israel. Let's discover what gems Paul has left for us in Romans 11.

Researchers at the Barna Group recently worked with the team at the American Bible Society to release their state of the Bible 2021 report. Their research tracked how the population perceives and engages the Bible. One encouraging finding is that one in six adults in the united states is still reading the Bible most days during the week. While it might seem strange to call the fact that sixteen percent of U.S. adults reads the Bible on most days encouraging, you have to realize that this was an increase from the twelve percent who did the same in 2020. We should hope and pray that this trend will continue to move upward. One way to ensure that this will happen is to take seriously our responsibility to nurture our kids into daily bible reading through our parenting and our youth ministries. Psalm one-hundred nineteen, verse one-o-five says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and light to my path.” God has made us for himself. We can only know and follow him as we know and obey his word.
When life gets busy and complicated, we can lose connection with God. But developing the habit of reading the bible will draw you closer to God and help you navigate life.Date: August 8, 2021Speaker: Leslie McCarthySeries: The Way Back
