North Side U is starting this Sunday, and I’m so excited about the class that I am teaching: Hermeneutics. Don’t let the big word scare you, it’s about reading the Bible for all its worth.
I mean it can’t be hard if I’m using stick people to teach it.
Have you ever read a passage that you thought could no way relate to you? What about ignoring certain books of the Bible because they are too confusing? Have you ever wondered how to apply biblical passages that just seem to be telling a story? Those are the questions we’re going to answer in this class.
The reason for this class: people can get into dangerous situations when they misinterpret the Bible. And people do it all the time. Wars have been started, marriages started or ended, employment has shifted, doctrines have been accepted all because people don’t know how to interpret the Bible correctly (2 Tim. 2:15). We’re going to have some curriculum and hopefully you will see it as tools to help equip you once these weeks are over.
I want you to think about this quote:
“The Bible will keep me from sin, or sin will keep me from the Bible.”
If you want to grow deeper in your relationship with Christ, I pray that this class can help. Bring a friend. Come with your family. Pick up a hitchhiker. Sunday @ 5:30pm in the Auditorium at North Side. If this class doesn’t interest you, there is a bunch of other great classes.
Hope I can see you there.
