Letting Christ Transform You From The Inside Out
The Foundations section is meant to help you understand the foundational truths that God tells us to build our lives on. Jesus taught these principles to His disciples. They, in turn, as requested by Jesus, taught them to others.
Jesus trailblazed a new WAY (path), with his own body and blood, for people to leave their brokenness and become reconciled with God. He not only died so that we could be set free from shame and guilt, but during his 33 years of life, he showed us how to function as "children of God". In other words, he modeled the lifestyle of walking with God. He used the principles found in these foundational studies to reframe our way of approaching life so that we could not only be kept "safe" from the decaying and corrupt culture around us, but also be a catalyst promoting wholeness to those around us. You can quickly access these studies at any time by using the drop down menu on the top of each web page. A separate index is also located at the bottom of this page.
All of these studies in the Foundations section will skim the surface of biblical teaching. Thus, they will teach the "basics". At times there will be a link to a more in depth teaching of the subject for advanced students of the Bible. If you are a beginner, I recommend that you refrain from linking to these more advanced studies until you have completed all of the "basic" foundational studies.
As you begin to embrace these foundational truths and implement them in your life, you will become a more "grounded" person who is centered on what really matters in life. Other people and philosophies won't be able to easily sway you and get you off track from your glorious purpose in life as a child of God.
Understanding God through the Bible is a process. God does not exasperate people with more detail than they need. He patiently and thoughtfully builds on a foundation.
Even if you don't yet believe that the Bible is written by God (through the hands of men) or that Jesus is God in the form of a man, I encourage you to study and honestly consider the issues brought up in these foundational studies before making a final judgment.
