Where Has The Bible Gone From Our Bible Studies?

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes I wonder what is happening when so many of our Bible studies that are typically used are full of comments or ideas from others--but seldom looking at the Word. Other peoples insights can be helpful, but are we simply studying? Or is it true Bible Study? There are definitely good materials out there but there is a lot of fluff and doctrinally incorrect stuff too. Just a thought--not that I claim to know everything---just a caution to be sure we are correctly dividing the Word of Truth-----and growing from the Word!

Excellent observation. It seems most "Bible studies" are indeed nothing but studying a book by someone writing about what THEY think the Bible says. One of the worst is Beth Moore, and women of little discernment love her!

I concur! This is a good point. Another thing i see often is more time talking about prayer request than actual prayer.
