2006 has been designated "The Year of the Bible" by our community of faith. We are challenging everyone who attends Touchstone Community to take up the challenge to read through the entire Bible, beginning with their first encounter with us.
So many people are skeptical of the Bible and the claims it makes about itself and the claims Christ-followers make about it (these are not always the same, you know.) Many think of it as a mythology, a book of "begats" and written about times too distant to connect relevantly to our current situation in life. Many refer to quotes that parents or more likely grandparents have made from the Bible like "Spare the rod, spoil the child," which are not from the Bible (it's from Ben Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac.)
My suggestion...read through the Bible for yourself and examine it for yourself. I dare you!
