Q. I am a believer of the Bible and I hear where people become a believer and instantly want to read the Bible everyday, but that did not happen to me. I study it in a different way by reading different books on bible prophecy and going to different websites like yours and Hal Lindsey, Prophecy in the News, and Prophecy Update. Is that wrong or does it really matter where you get your information about the Bible?
A. While there is value in studying the views of different writers, we’re just expressing our opinions so you’re getting an understanding of what we think the Bible says. Acts 17:11 says you should also study the Bible to make sure that what we’re telling you is consistent with what the Bible says. When you became a believer the Holy Spirit was sealed within you (Ephes. 1:13-14). One of the things He can do is guide you into a complete understanding of God’s word (John 16:13). But you have to be willing to study to make that happen.
