The Bible School is the strength of the congreation. Seventy-five to eighty-five perscent of the conversions are reported to be assisted by the Bible School. Since Christianity is a taught religion, churches are only as strong as they are taught. We live what what we learn (cf. Acts 1:1) and teach what we are taught (II Timothy 2:2).The Bible School program of the local church is its backbone. The chiense said it this way, “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate a person.” Daniel Webster philosopized, “If we work upon marble, it will perish. If we work upon brass, time will efface it. If we rear temples, they will crumble into dust. But if we work upon men’s immortal minds, if we imbue them with high principles, we engrave on those tables something only time can efface and which brighten all eternity.”Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, was a teacher, yea, the Master Teachers. Forty-one times in his biographies He is called a teacher (23 times by friends, 12 by enemies, six by Himself). Teaching is at the beginning and heart of all conversion (John 6:44,45) and spiritual growth (I Peter 2:2, Acts 20:32). The word teach is used 109 times in the Bible (with synonyms, 148), showing its importance to Christianity. We believe that Bible Classes should be interesting and challenging.Chldren who know the lyrics to popular songs and can give your complete scientific descriptions of dinosaurs can surely learn the apostles and Old Testament stories! Teenagers who can learn calculus and phsics can certainly learn Christ and Paul. Adults who know how to fix cars and meals, run computers and expensive machinery, and who are among the best educated and most widely exposed of all peooples in the worlds history, certainly can understand the Bible and memorize some key verses.
