Certification of Bible and Theology

"Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled."
— Romans 15:4
Practical problems have theological answers. So the question is not whether or not you’re going to be a theologian, but what kind of theologian you’re going to be.

Good news

2024-02-14

As a Christian, I believe that through accepting Jesus Christ as my savior, I have been given a new life. Before I found Christ, I was lost, broken, and hopeless. But through his grace and forgiveness, I have been given a new start. I am no longer burdened by my past mistakes and sin, but instead, I am filled with joy, peace, and purpose.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” This verse perfectly captures the transformation that has taken place in my life. I am no longer the person I used to be. I have been made new through my faith in Jesus.

This new life has also given me a sense of belonging and community. I am now a part of the family of believers, surrounded by people who love and support me. I am also able to experience God’s presence and guidance in my daily life, knowing that I am never alone.

I am grateful for the new life that I have been given as a Christian. It has brought me healing, redemption, and a deep sense of purpose. I am forever thankful for the love and grace of Jesus Christ, and I am excited to continue living out this new life in service to others and to God.

What I have learnt In this Subject..Engaging Scriptures

2024-02-14

I thank the Lord Jesus Christ and the AXX family for this God given opportunity to study His Word.

I do appreciate my teacher Dr Matt for his humblenes and eloquent admirable Character.

I look forward to his teaching in the coming lessons.

My summary

1. Bible came from God through men by the Holy Ghost.

2. It is the true word of God.

3. It has to be interpretated correctly using authentic acceptable resources with sound doctrine.

4. Correct interpretation will lead to Sound teaching that will be helpful to the people of God.

5. Preachers have to be taught inorder to be able to do Correct exegesis.

6. We need teachers who have the knowledge to teach the men and women of God to do this.

7. It is not enough to here and understand the word, one must be able to apply the according to the principle that comes out from the scripture.

The Music attitude

2024-02-16

Tex have enlightened and encouraged me. I never looked at music as way of worship, I took it as entertainment especially when I see how some members dance to the music in church. Tex made me realized that I am the problem not them. I should be in Spirit, worshipping God as is only me and Him in church. I learnt so much and have changed my attitudes towards music on church
