According to a survey most Christians do not read their Bible on a regular basis, so how would they know what it says.
There is too much going along with the culture.
Many Christians do not know why they believe what they do. There is much “programmed” teaching that a person is taught to believe without questioning.
There is sometimes a neglect of core biblical doctrine.
Building block number 12 is to know what you believe and why, with uncompromising convictions.
One’s spiritual beliefs should be based upon a divine source that transcends all human levels of knowledge. All teachings must come under the scrutiny of the Word of God. You need to be able to defend your faith and beliefs against opposition. Uncompromising beliefs will be evident in the work place, at college, in the home, in your marriage and family, and in one’s personal integrity.
Foundational scripture passages:
Colossians 2:7-8; Ephesians 4:14; Hebrews 13:9; I Peter 1:13, 3:15-16; I John 5:13; Acts 17:11; II Corinthians 13:5; Romans 14:22, and the entire book of I John.
1. Could you make a list of 10 beliefs you hold with conviction, that would not be compromised no matter the situation?
2. Do you have any beliefs that are simply going along with the culture?
3. Could you defend your beliefs if someone challenged you?
