Bible Study Contents

Bible study is just walking with God one wonder-filled,

We cannot fight the good fight if we don’t know what we’re doing. It is imperative that we know and understand the Bible so we don’t make the common mistake of fighting this spiritual war by relying on the arm of flesh. This is a basic Bible study not because The Age of Reason is easy or simplistic, but because getting to know God’s Instruction Manual must be the first step to becoming a mature soldier of Christ who is properly trained up in the way he should go.

 

Conveniently organized by subject into 50 chapters.

 

Master Bible doctrine and see Christianity’s big picture with this

plainly-worded Bible study that has been helping Christians since 1999.

 

Gain a Biblical perspective that clarifies world history and current events.

 

Have the kind of understanding that enables you to confidently discuss

all Bible doctrines.

 

Acquire the confidence and lasting motivation that come from knowing

the truth and walking together with the Lord.

 

Avoid the apostasy within the church during these dark last days.

 

Help Christians repent, grow, and develop into Biblical warriors.

 

Obtain the kind of advanced, comprehensive Bible education you only

hoped you’d get when you paid for your doctorate in theology.

  

Study this book (selected by a Bible institute as a textbook for both

students and instructors) at your own pace at home for free.

 

After you finish The Age of Reason Bible study, continue your

education with The War College and The Trumpets.

DOCTRINAL SECTION

 

D1  The Star of Bethlehem

It was an angel, not a star...and the wise men were never at the manger.

The Deep, the firmament, dark matter, and the universe.

Up, north, and the frozen surface of the Deep.

 

D4  The Gap

D5  A Literal Interpretation: Making Much of the Word of God

D6  Authority

The issue. The Lord’s prayer, Abraham, Nazi war criminals, private property, etc.

 

D7  The Quick and the Dead

How to apply the crucial difference between body, soul, and spirit. Verily I say unto thee, except a

man be born again, he cannot enter the spiritual kingdom of God. (See also D21, D8, D10, D27.)

 

D8  Dogs and Angels

Why both Testaments call pagans “dogs” and God’s people “Christians.” (See also D7, D10, D27.)

 

D9  How to Grow by Feeding the Spirit

We must work to eat, and eat to grow.

 

D10  The Wicked Shall be Turned into Hell

Scripture is used to show those in hell are God’s people with spirit life who’ve gone bad, such as

Lucifer and Judas – but the Bible never says the unregenerate go to hell. (See also D7, D8, D27.)

D19  Law and Grace

Testaments, laws, and things we learn from them – such as the real eternal security.

D21  Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven

KOG is the spiritual realm; KOH is the physical universe. (See also D7.)

 

D22  The King James Bible Version Issue

Explains why the Bible controversy (is the Bible God’s inerrant word...or “just a translation”)

always focuses on the KJV and never on other versions.

Christ refused political involvement because He understood a doctrine many don’t know exists.

 

D24  The Lost Ten Tribes and Christian Activism

The ten tribes, genealogy, and modern rebellion.

D26  In the Image of God Made He Them

Adam was in God’s image...until Eve was taken from “them”.

 

D27  The Immortality of the Soul Controversy

The Bible says all humans and animals have souls, and we humans get immortality only when we are

spiritually born again. That Biblical truth is why your church ignores this topic: It can’t explain how

pagans get immortality but animals don’t...when neither has spirit life. (See also D7, D8, D10, D21.)

 

D28  In Sickness and In Health

God is very specific about His health plan in both Testaments.

 

D29  Witnessing and Contending for the Faith

JWs and Mormons are used to show how the Bible exposes false doctrine.

 

D30  Tongues

There is a difference between “tongues” and “unknown tongues”...and gibberish is neither.

 

D31  Money and Christian Finances

Tithing, usury, debt, and modern applications.

It’s not Saturday and it’s not Sunday...but it’s getting closer.

 

D33  Three Days and Three Nights

Christ was crucified on Wednesday.
