According to the Barna Group, only 9% of all American adults have a biblical worldview. And yet, many wonder why there is so much turmoil in our world. People are desperately looking for answers. Amidst the raging political debates about gun control, crime looms large in our land and no one talks much about the real problem: declining morality resulting from a society that has turned its back on God and His Truth. Each successive generation knows less and less about God and His ways.
Our children are being swept away in a corrupt society that uses every possible means to capture their minds. Each day, our children are being fed Satan’s lies through the media, the classroom, and sadly, even in many of our homes. It’s critical that we teach God’s inerrant, infallible Word to our families!
Lydia understands the importance of teaching her kids God’s Truth, beginning early as possible. She is doing a remarkable job teaching her children Inductive Bible Study. Lydia writes:
“I first found out about Kay Arthur when I was participating in the Bible Study, Faithful, Abundant, and True. When I saw Kay on the video, I just loved it! I was captivated by her honesty and her knowledge of God’s Word. Afterward, I was determined to find out more about Kay and Precept Ministries.
As I was navigating through Precept Ministries’ website, I found out about her Bible teaching program, Precepts For Life. I was hungry for truth and was so thankful and happy to be able to study from home and online. Because of the FREE Bible Study Guides and the wonderful programming resources, I’m always more than happy to donate to Precept.
Since I found these wonderful Precepts For Life Studies, I have taken Israel, Isaiah, Sermon on the Mount, Daniel, Revelation, and Jeremiah. I am currently doing Philippians.
As a stay-at-home mom, these online studies are enormously helpful. I can study from the comfort of my home and include my kids. I really wanted my children to study with me and Precepts For Life is understandable even to my youngest child. I first found the series on Christmas. Afterward, we studied Sermon on the Mount, and Jeremiah Parts 1 & 2.
I do one PFL study alone and do a separate one with my two sons. Nathan is 5 years old and Brandon is 10. In one of these episodes, Kay mentioned that she liked to hear from the audience. After she said that, Nathan turned and said to me, ‘Mommy, tell Kay that I love her!’ and I smiled, ‘OK, I will.’
Both of my sons sit on either side of me and we listen to the Bible Study programs and take notes. We have the PFL Study Guide out and during a commercial or after the program, I ask them questions. And we get to do this every day! What a joy!
Please know your studies are amazing and we are grateful for them!
It is through your prayers and God's faithfulness that we are on the verge of expanding the work of Precept like never before in the history of the Ministry. God gave us the vision to reach 30,000 new Canadians with Inductive Bible study. And we can see that it is truly His vision.
Have we met our goal? Not yet. But we are well on our way, and I know God will continue to be faithful as we follow His leading. Thank you for hearing God's call and partnering with us in this incredible opportunity.
Blessed by your partnership,
Mark Sheldrake, National Director
