The best way to learn what the Bible has to say is to read it.
Because often people will form an opinion and develop their views without being in possession of all the fact we at the Open Bible Learning Centre would encourage believers and nonbelievers alike to read what the Bible has to say about you, me and the world we all share, but most important of all what God reveals to us through his word.
Heb 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets.
Joh 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
However, because the Bible is compiled to both provide a historic framework and to reveal God’s important message for our future it, therefore, contains many layers of information and meaning, making it essential, to study carefully in its entirety. This is not which can be done with a single reading and something which is not best done reading from page 1 to the end.
Rom 10:13-15 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
