Why Teach Bible?
The easy to read version of Isaiah 55:11 says it best,
“In the same way, my words leave my mouth, they don’t come back without results. My words make the things happen that I want to happen. They succeed in doing what I send them to do.”
Reading The Bible is like drinking pure natural spring water. Not only will it wet your whistle, it will bring much needed minerals to support your body. It is also an excellent springboard for studying history!
