Welcome Visitors!
We are happy that you chose to be with us. It is our prayer that you were
encouraged as you joined us in praising God and studying His word.
Since it is difficult to get to know someone very well during their first
visit, we hope to see you again so that we can get to know you better.

Serious Bible Study (2)
I think of those Jews from the town of Berea. They welcomed Paul’s
preaching of the good news and “examined the scriptures every day to
see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11). Paul exhorted the Ephesian Christians to“understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians
5:17). He also encouraged the young preacher, Timothy, “Do your best to
present yourself to God as one approved by Him, a worker who has no
need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth” (2 Timothy
In serious Bible study, we learn the difference between ancient and
modern definitions of christ, baptism, church, presbyters, bishops, shepherds and saints. We learn who, in the New Testament, the Sadducees,
the Pharisees and the scribes were. We learn who, in the Old Testament,
the Rechabites, the Hittites and the Amorites were. We learn why various places, for example, Samaria, Zion and Tekoa, are important.
In serious Bible study, we learn the value of various translations
and the use of tools, namely Bible dictionaries and original language
lexicons, to help us appreciate those translations. We learn of the value
of context of a passage, whether the immediate context of the text to
help us understand its meaning, or the overall context of the Scripture
to discover, using a concordance or cross references, other passages
that teach similar things.
In serious Bible study, we learn the value of those books that provide background information, for example, of Bible lands and Bible cultures. We learn the value of commentaries, both good and bad.
Ask me about what books that I would recommend for further Bible
study. You may reach me by writing, Rocky Whitely, 3200 Cavitt Ave.,
Bryan, TX 77801, or by calling me at 979 822-4844, or by emailing me

I know. Some might think that Festus’ words apply to me, too. He
said, “You are out of your mind!... Too much learning is driving you insane!” (Acts 26:24) My goal, however, is to “stand mature and [be] fully
assured in everything that God wills” (Colossians 4:12). So then,
bring “the books, and above all the parchments” (2 Timothy 4:13), I have
more studying to do.

I recently read a quote by Tim
Ferriss, author of "The 4-Hour
"You're the average of the
five people you associate
with the most."
Makes me think of 1 Cor. 15:33,
"Do not be deceived: 'Bad company corrupts good morals.'”
If we want to be friendly to others, have a positive outlook on
life and be happy then should we
associate with people with similar characteristics?
Mark your calendars!
