Unique Biblical View of Life
Mankind seems to be
caught on a perpetual merry-go-round. The piped music plays as most go
through life being carried continuously up and down by the circumstances
of life. Finally, when all is said and done for most of their lives, it
seems they have merely gone around in circles. Up and down, round and
round life seems to have little, if any, meaningful direction.
If Christianity is abundant life (John 10:10), why does it seem that so
many Christians actually do not reign in life? Also, if "the gates
of hell shall not prevail against [the Church]" (Matt. 16:18), why
do so many local churches actually struggle to stay alive. Although
Christians are to be, "Strengthened with all might, according to
his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness
. . ." (Col. 1:11), the characteristic of "all patience and
longsuffering with joyfulness" is definitely lacking in the life of
The remedy for this all too often anemic condition can be found in
exploring the Biblical view of life. Fundamental Truths of Christian
Living: Experiencing Jesus through Others is a Bible study
accentuating the unique Christian world view of life. It centers on the
three primary reasons the mass of humanity fail to experience the
joyful, abundant life they desire.
Truths of Christian Living Is
Bible Study for Individuals or for Small Groups
Purpose of Course:
Jesus taught His disciples to pray, ". . . Give us this day our
daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And
lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil . . . ."
Hidden in the meaning of the Lordís prayer are three noble truths of
Christianity. The purpose of this Bible study is to give an overview of
what it means to be Christian in the light of those truths.
Theme of the Course: Jesus said, "It is the spirit that
quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto
you, they are spirit, and they are life." Christian living is based
solely upon the words of Jesus. Moreover, the Spirit of revelation must
continually break into and conquer the fleshly understanding of manís
mind for Christian learning to occur. The theme of this course is to
attempt to let the participants hear Jesus speak to them as the writings
of the early followers of Jesus are examined in the light of the
illumination of the Holy Spirit.

All men by divine fiat
are social creatures. What it means to be a human being is found only in
the expression of the interaction of at least two people. Although a
person has individuality, he has his identity only in the light of
another person. He actually comes to know and to understand himself as
he see himself reflected in the lives of other people.
As beholding himself in a mirror, he comes to know himself from what he
sees. The reflections that come back to him from the people with whom he
is interacting is the sole basis for his sense of identity. This fact
alone inseparably ties an individual to the need of others.
Like the musical note that stands alone, the melodious medley of life is
non-existence in the acts of an individual. For an individual to
experience the good life he must enter into a strain or series of
harmonious interaction with others sharing the same moment of time. The
individual makes music only when he is placed in relationships with
Furthermore, changing the particular frequency of an individual musical
note standing alone matters little. Changing the frequency of that
musical note as it stands in relation to other musical notes, however,
can move the sound from harmony to disharmony or from mere noise to the
sound of music. It is the relationship of the notes that makes the
So it is in living life. It matters little if an individual standing
alone changes anything or everything about himself. As he moves in and
out of relationships, however, the essence of life is drastically
altered. The good life (or the bad life) is measured only by the
interaction between individuals.
It is within relationships that the connecting links of life have their
greatest potential. All that the Scriptures proclaim, the heavens and
the hells of life, transpire in the interaction of the connections of
life. The ground of being for the germination of all life is the
interaction of relationships.
Mystery of Life Explained
thumb represents the first person (Adam). Before he could experience a
life of fulfillment, he had to be put to sleep. His current world of
experience came to an end. While he was asleep, the essence of the
second person was taken from his side. The little finger represents the
second person (Eve). God took the rib from Adam, formed Eve, and then
presented her back to Adam. When the second person was joined to
the first person, it produced a
third entity--the relationship between the two individuals. Now, there
were three--the image and likeness of God was completed. The index
finger represents the image of God--the manifestation of the likeness of
the Son of God between the two. It is how flesh and blood bodies enter
into and experience the kingdom of God. The entire process is the
mystery of life demonstrating the three noble truths of Christianity
