Results speak for themselves and the evidence-based Bible study method set forth in this book delivers consistently better results for those who are seeking to learn the truth from God's word. The biblical case studies in this book apply the counsel that is in God's word to the study of God's word and the results of doing so reveals truth that is taught by God through scripture.
"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good" (1 Th 5:21) and "let God be true, but every man a liar" (Rom 3:4) are just two of many Bible verses that let us know diligence is required in seeking to learn the truth on biblical issues. But, what is the best way to prove if an idea or teaching is true?
Since "all scripture is given by inspiration of God" (2 Tm 3:16), the testimony of scripture should be our measure of truth. Sadly, however, many people use other means of deciding what is true, and because of this they end up holding views that are contrary to scripture.
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge" (Prv 1:7). So, the starting point if one wants to grow in knowledge is respect for the authority of God. To help keep this in focus, scripture will be the only authority cited in this book.
"Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him" (Prv 30:5). Here we find counsel on how one should view God's word, and the biblical case studies in this book show how passages like this point the way to a better Bible study method.
As will be shown, trusting in God's word can teach people more than the truth on various issues. For if we honor God by submitting to the authority of scripture consistently and with integrity, then the light it offers can correct us, draw us to the truth, and keep us from being deceived.
