With all the government-imposed cultural changes in our “once” Christian nation, it is more important than ever to know the Word of God in order to know what is true and good. Test Your Bible IQ: with these 7 random quotes* In what book of the Bible is this scripture? Is the book Old Testament or New Testament? Who is thought to have said it the first time it appears in the Bible? 1. Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. 2. Love your neighbor as yourself. 3. The fear of man lays a snare, but he who trusts in the LORD is safe. 4. Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong 5. If anyone will not work, let him not eat. 6. Love the LORD, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole being, and with your whole strength 7. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Resolve to read the entire Bible beginning NOW

The advantages of knowing Holy Scripture - I believe it has become a NECESSITY -  are several:
  • Jesus says His words are Spirit and life.
  • Quoting Moses, Jesus reminds His followers that we don't live by bread alone but by every word of God.
  • St Paul tells us that faith comes from hearing (or reading) the Word of God.
  • St James tells us the Word of God has the power to save our souls.
  • Again, St Paul tells us that the Word of God is living and active and that it separates what is soulish (merely human) from what is truly spiritual.
  • The great Bible translator, St Jerome says, "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ."
We all need this kind of guidance for our walk with God, especially with the proliferation of knowledge, much if not most of it false or tainted, that bombards us in this modern era through all mediums of communication. So many are confused or deceived.
 
Before we know it the New Year will be upon us. I recommend you do as I did. Determine to read the Bible from cover to cover in a year, reading selections from both the Old and the New Testaments along with a Psalm or chapter of Proverbs each day of the journey - pretty much the way the readings are arranged at Mass, but with NOTHING MISSED AND NO REPETITIONS.

YOU TURNS Bible-in-a-Year bookmarks have just such a plan. Learn more...

Every Catechist and Youth Minister should endeavor to equip his/herself with this power of God's Word as personal training for the ministry. SO LET'S GO!!!
