seanherriottSteve’s article in THIS ROCK Magazine
“Should Catholics Attend ‘Ecumenical’ Bible Studies

My article Should Catholics go to Non-Denominational Bible Studies? appears in the January 2007 issue of THIS ROCK Magazine. In the article I recommend another article I wrote entitled  How To Start A Parish Bible Study. In addition, here are a load of other Bible Study resources–click here and here.

How To Start a Parish Bible Study
beginning of Steve’s article

“The Bible is so thick and confusing. Mary dusted off the big book and tried reading it several months ago, but she thought it would be a huge help if she could find a good Catholic Bible study—a class where Catholics could study the Bible together.

“Mary visited a popular Bible study in town, but was humiliated when answering a question. The study focused on a verse in St. John’s Gospel. Jesus had said, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.” After reading this passage the teacher asked, “OK, what does this verse mean to you?”

‘Mary excitedly raised her hand—she knew that answer for that one! She said that Jesus was talking about the Eucharist, the Real Presence of Christ. The room fell silent. Then there were a few snickers and a few women even gasped. Then group grew uncomfortably quiet and everyone looked at the teacher….”

The Church lost my wife and family to Evangelicalism due to my ignorance of Scripture and Bible Study Fellowship International some 15 years ago. I’m not ignorant anymore but it’s too late, they don’t want anything to do with the Church and enjoy the “awesome” worship of the Evangelical Super Store.

I can think of no good reason for a Catholic to go to BSF or and comparable Evangelical indoctrination.

Pete:

I couldn’t agree with you more. I hear the same sad story over and over again. I used to be one that used Bible study to pull Catholics out of the Church. But now I am on YOUR side. That is why we’ve put together the Logos Bible Software for Catholics and the answer to BSF which is http://www.CatholicScriptureStudy.com or CSS. May God bless you and your family!
