Has American Christianity Failed?
by Bryan Wolfmueller

Reading the Bible can seem daunting. Its words, however, are the very words of God and the words of life. God wants us to hear, understand, and believe His Word, and His Spirit works through it to enable us to do so.

 

The first challenge in reading God's Word is simply to open the Book. The devil delights in distracting us with other activities or priorities that may seem more urgent, exciting, or important. So resist, and frustrate the devil! 

1. The Bible is about forgiveness and life in Jesus.

2. Scripture interprets Scripture.

3. Testament interprets Testament.

4. Words do things (warn, humble, encourage, etc.).

5. God the Holy Spirit helps us.

                        Luther's Small Catechism with Explanation, 354-357

I know my faith is founded on Jesus Christ, my God and Lord;
And this my faith confessing, unmoved I stand on His sure Word.
Our reason cannot fathom the truth of God profound;
Who trusts in human wisdom relies on shifting ground.
God's Word is all sufficient, it makes divinely sure;
And trusting in its wisdom, my faith shall rest secure.
LSB 587:1
