Hebrews 5:12-13 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you
need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God;

partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a

A new soul
is born
Grow up
Without literacy, the cycle will continue forever
Still Chained?
In the past, the Bible was
chained and people could
not have it
Among the Sudra, they may
own a Bible but they cannot
read it
We all must grow in knowledge
1 Peter 2:2
as newborn babes, desire
the pure milk of the word,
that you may grow thereby
Babe in Christ
2 Peter 1:3
His divine power has given to us all
things that pertain to life and
godliness, through the knowledge of
Him who called us by glory and virtue
2 Peter 3:17-18
beware lest you also fall from your
own steadfastness, being led away
with the error of the wicked; but
grow in the grace and knowledge of
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Growing in the Grace AND KNOWLEDGE of Christ
Child in Christ
Mature Christian
Elder, Deacon,
Preacher, Teacher
We must study to become mature
Ephesians 4:13-1
till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son
of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of
Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and
carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men,
in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the
truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—
Christians must study the Bible
“I write to you”…so you must read!
2 Corinthians 1:13
For we are not writing any other
things to you than what you read
or understand.
1 John 2:13
I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is
from the beginning. I write to you, young men, Because you
have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little
children, Because you have known the Father.
Revelation 1:3
Blessed is he who reads and those
who hear the words of this prophecy,
and keep those things which are
written in it; for the time is near.
Matthew 12:3,5, 19:4, 23:31
Mark 12:10
Have you not read …
Ephesians 3:3-5
how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I
have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may
understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ),
1 Timothy 4:13
Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
We must study to defend our
own faith from false teachers
Jude 3
…contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
Acts 17:11
… they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether
these things were so.
2 Peter 2:1-3
But there were also false prophets
among the people, even as there will
be false teachers among you, who will
secretly bring in destructive heresies,
even denying the Lord who bought
them, and bring on themselves swift
destruction. And many will follow their
destructive ways, because of whom
the way of truth will be blasphemed.
By covetousness they will exploit you
with deceptive words; for a long time
their judgment has not been idle, and
their destruction does not slumber.
But if we cannot read…
Study to show
Babe in Christ
Child in Christ
We can be saved without reading, but…
