Biblical Studies

I have not yet been able to stereotype my theological views, and have ceased to expect ever to do so. The idea is proposterous. None but an omniscient mind can continue to maintain a precise identity of views and opinions. Finite minds, unless they are asleep or stultified by prejudice, must advance in knowledge. The discovery of new truth will modify old views and opinions, and there is perhaps no end to this process with finite minds in any world. True Christian consistency does not consist in stereotyping our opinions and views, and in refusing to make any improvement lest we should be guilty of change, but it consists in holding our minds open to receive the rays of truth from every quarter and in changing our views and language and practice as often and as fast, as we can obtain further information.  Charles Finney


Subjects are in general alphabetical order.

Most of the studys operate under the precept that when God wanted to get a message across, He didnt say it just once. Most of the Studys pose a question, or investigate a truth, with the scriptures providing the answers.
