Have you ever wanted to know more of what the Bible says about being a Christian? These six studies are deceptively short, simple, and clear. Each one can be read quickly, but if you really delve into them – checking the Scriptures, working through the Bible studies, thinking through the reflection questions – you will find a rich study resource.
The Bible Themes resource at the end is a useful alphabetical listing of key Bible themes that gives practical and teaching help along with Scripture references. The “see also” cross references are linked within the section.
You can use this ebook for personal Bible study or for group study.
What does it mean to be a Christian? The term can be applied to a political party, to a philosophy, or to a morality or ethic. In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis has the senior demon advise Wormwood, “If men become Christians at all, … keep them in the state of mind I call ‘Christianity And’. You know . . . Christianity and Faith Healing, . . . Christianity and Vegetarianism, Christianity and Spelling Reform. If they must be Christians . . . substitute for the faith itself some Fashion with a Christian colouring.”
These studies will take you firmly into what it means to be a Christian believer as lived out and taught by Jesus and his disciples. We will talk about the Bible, about prayer, about witnessing, and about living in the world. Even the most promising followers of Christ can be diverted by today’s fads and trends–“Christianity And”. That’s why these studies will help you to live a biblical Christianity.
