SPEAKER

Steve Hill

SCRIPTURE

James 1:22-25

BIG IDEA

Knowing the Bible is easier than Living the Bible.

OUTLINE

  1. Even God’s Word has a warning label.
    • Self-Deception
    • Deep Fallacy
  2. Getting a firm grip on God’s Word.
    • Hear
    • Read
    • Study
    • Memorize
    • Meditate
  3. Practice leads to transformation.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. As you have learned about the Bible, do you view it more as a “Tips-and-Techniques“ book or more as a life-changing book? Explain.
  2. Does the Bible seem boring to you or more like a rated-R movie?
  3. Discuss which parts of the Bible have you put into practice. Which parts have you not? For those parts you have not, do you expect others to apply them? Why?
  4. James 1:25 talks about God’s Word setting us free. From what are we freed? What are the practical results?
  5. Read honestly, the Bible is meant to change a person’s heart and not be a moral list of to-do’s. To what degree has or can the Bible affect your view of the following people or tension-filled topics: sexuality, politics, LGBTQ, immigrants, racism, life, or human trafficking?
