1. Fellow Southern Idaho Baptist pastor runs a marathon. Good job, Paul. And for a good cause!
3. I don’t understand Cal’s ecumenism at all.
But let me counter with an illustration. My little boy, Micaiah, is enrolled in Calvary Chapel Christian School in Idaho Falls. His Day 1, Bible Lesson 1, homework paper includes the following:
The Bible is the greatest book that has ever been written. In it God Himself speaks to mankind. It is a book of divine instruction. The Bible is not simply one book. It is an entire library of books that contain a wide variety of information, but it is tied together by one central purpose. The Bible was written by dozens of authors over a period of 1,600 years. It was written in three languages on three continents. The authors were poets, educators, singers, princes, kings, fishermen, and statesmen. Some of these authors were great scholars, while others were unlearned and ignorant.
It would seem that with this many authors and it being written over 1,600 years, the individual pieces of the Bible would not fit together well. Yet there is great unity throughout the book because really there was only one Author. To understand how so many authors could be unified in their writing of one book, we need to understand that there really was only one main Author.
Can we hear a shout of amen? The Bob Jones University and Pensacola curriculum do a fine job.
Some of the worksheet questions:
- What is the central message of the Bible (v. 12)? Micaiah wrote, “Get Jesus and be saved.”
- How then can we “see” God? Micaiah penciled, “We can pray and read the Bible.”

2 Timothy 3:16 gives four reasons for us to study God’s Word. List the four reasons below as given in the verse. Beside each reason, look up the word in the dictionary and write the definition. We need to make sure we understand the purposes for studying God’s Word.
- teaching – it can teach you patshens

I think that is pretty good Bibliology for a little Webelo in S.E. Idaho.
