At some point in life, everyone must deal with God's Book. This weekend on Truth For Life, Alistair Begg asks the questions, "What's the purpose of the Bible?" And, what's the relevance to me? The series is called, "Why Bother With the Bible?" today on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg! More
Why Bother with the Bible?Why bother with the Bible? Some are asking because they think it’s nothing more than an archaic book about life in another time, something that has no relevance in the twenty-first century. That’s why it plays even less of a role in worship services today. "Why would anyone devote so much time to teaching the Bible, Alistair. Let’s just worship!" Sadly, I’ve heard comments like that more than once in my journeys. Yet the truth is that studying the Bible is worship. It’s central to the worship service and gives voice to our praise. Also it’s the only place we can learn about Jesus Christ, who is the object of our worship and the sole means of salvation. Once we come to know this salvation, it is the Bible that instructs us how to live in a way that proves we belong to Him. In a day when so many claim to converse with God, the Bible provides the safest and only sure way to hear God’s voice. He uses it to heal and cleanse our emotions and our affections, to restore broken lives, and to produce spiritual health and vitality. Ultimately, it is the plumb line against which we measure all claims to truth. Must we bother with the Bible? In this new series we’ll discover that, actually, we cannot live without it.

In First Corinthians, Paul instructs men not to wear head coverings in church, and he tells women that they ought to cover their heads. What’s the purpose of those head coverings, and how do those commands apply to us today? We’ll answer those questions on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg. More
Many people think that they’re saved because they attend church. But, as the saying goes, “Just because you’re in the garage … doesn’t mean you’re a car!” On Truth For life with Alistair Begg, we’ll be challenged to evaluate whether or not we’re truly following Christ. More
