WHY STUDY TO BE APPROVED BY GOD?

(2Tim 2:15 [KJV])

STUDY to shew thyself APPROVED unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
 

It is important to know for yourself what to do. This information seeks to show you the importance of study. 

 

What does it mean to be approved?

 

Approval by the WORLD:

In the world if you want to do anything as a profession or practice you must be trained. You must study and after your training you are then given a certificate that certifies that you are now qualified to do it the right way (hopefully). And it is personal to each one.

 

Would you go to a doctor that was never trained or certified? It makes for a bad result.

Approval by GOD:

When we come to know God, we too as believers must study the word. Why? God will only approve us if we STUDY His word and do what it says. It is important to note that this is also for each individual. Why? Being in a group cannot save you if that one person that leads has it wrong; you will be eternally doomed. Will you really trust your eternal destiny on the beliefs (doctrines) of one man (pastor, priest or organization) or would you search out and investigate it for yourself to know what is true.  

 

Take note… Here is the foundation for our comments. 

(2Tim 2:15 [KJV])

STUDY to shew thyself APPROVED unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

 

If you do not study, how would you know if you are correct when you pray, sing, fast and love another. You can “feel strong” in what you do but it can also mean that you are strong on your way to Hell. Read does your flesh Rule (feelings).

 

Some people say that TTGM writes too long on subjects and they decide not to read them. Our answer to them is that we at TTGM study and when we write we bring scripture to support what we are saying. Why? Scripture has to be used as our foundation for what we believe. We also use video presentations that are given by men that teach according to the word. We write as long as it takes to ensure that the topic is well understood.

 

What we write is for the few that study God’s word and their eternal salvation is the most important part of their life. The many that say Lord Lord and do little or no study will be told to depart from God; He never knew them is what He will say (Read this on salvation and iniquity).  The many were simply doing it wrong.

 

Most of what we write is concise and can be placed on two pages. We at TTGM pray that you not only read the Word of God, but study the Word of God to know for yourself that you are standing on firm ground.

The time is now for all of us to be there and be the Brother and Sister in Christ for each other in the Spirit of Love.

 

STUDY TO BE APPROVED BY GOD (and do what the word says)

One more thing, you do not have to be educated in a theological school to understand God’s word. Why not? Fishermen understood it and preached it. Who helped them? The greatest and most loving teacher of all, the Holy Spirit. 

 

Here we offer some guidance to start your study – visit page on study.

 

The preferred book we recommend is the King James Version – Here is why we are weary of the Newer Versions (watch presentation 2)
