SUBJECT: BIBLE

I. INTRODUCTION

A. IF I WERE TO ASK YOU TO RAISE YOUR
HAND TODAY IN ANSWER TO THE
QUESTION, “DO YOU LOVE GOD,”
PROBABLY EVERYONE IN HERE WOULD
RAISE HIS HAND.

1. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO REALLY
LOVE GOD?

2. LOVE IS A WORD WE TOSS AROUND
RATHER LOOSELY.

3. WHEN YOU REALLY LOVE SOMEONE
THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS YOU
LOVE ABOUT THAT PERSON AND
THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS YOU
ARE WILLING TO DO BECAUSE OF
YOUR LOVE.

SERIES ON “BECAUSE I LOVE GOD I WILL

1. THEY HAD BEEN GREATLY
INFLUENCED BY THE BABYLONIAN
NATION.


2. THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF GOD’S
WORD HAD GREATLY DIMINISHED.

3. THIS IS TRUE TODAY. WE HAVE
GOD’S WORD, BUT OUR
KNOWLEDGE OF IT HAS BEEN
SQUEEZED OUT BY EVERYTHING
ELSE.

B. “KIDS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS” BY,
FIRST, ARK LINKLETTER AND NOW BILL
COSBY REVEALS CHILDREN’S THOUGHTS
ON MANY SUBJECTS. NONE ARE MORE
PRECIOUS THAN THERE THOUGHTS ON
THE BIBLE.

1. ONE LITTLE BOY, WHOSE NAME
WAS MAX, WAS ASKED, “DO YOU
