What Should We Be Doing?

INTRODUCTION

As our book, Bible Studies, explains, our articles are written to share and preserve Biblical Truths, address problems in the Church, counteract doctrinal errors proclaimed by others, and inspire others, especially our family and friends. I owe a tremendous debt to others for everything I have learned. Most articles we publish are the work of more than one person. These Studies have "bled" with red ink marks several times!

Our miscellaneous Bible Studies have been published in our book, Bible Studies. Over the years, we have emphasized several major topics, which have been published separately. These include: Biblical Holy Days, Biblical Law, Biblical Doctrine, Biblical Marriage and Family, Biblical Health and Healing, Church History, Basic Bible Study Tools, Book Reviews and What Should We Be Doing? Revised and expanded editions of these and others are being planned. As we write additional articles, they will be included in the next update. Except where noted, all articles are written by myself.

This publication includes articles on the subject of what we as individuals should be doing to spread the faith of our Savior the Messiah. All too often, believers are told that their responsibility is only to "pay and pray." Donít you listen to this swan song of a dead church! There are many things we, as lay people, should be doing to fulfill our Saviorís Commission to His disciples to go into all the world with the Good News, making disciples of all nations.

I have been condemned to hellfire by at least one prominent minister. The audacity of a lay member writing religious articles! However, I must write what is in my heart, as I want to share what I have learned with others. Let God be the Judge. I pray that the Eternal will use this small effort for Him, for His glory, and that He will forgive me of any unintentional errors contained therein. Read, and enjoy, always remembering to put into practice what you have learned.

NOTE: I have concluded individual articles with the Greek Omega symbol, indicating the end.W
