Wrestling with the book

Sundays, August 25 - September 8

9 & 10:45 am

The Bible's not easy to read! This "library" of 66 documents was written by many authors from various cultures much different than our own. At FaithWestwood, we want to help you read and understand The Book, so it becomes God's gift of life to you. Christians believe Jesus (the living Word) is both God and human. In the same way, the Bible (the written Word) is both God's book and a human book. 

Come find out for yourself.

How Can the Bible and Science Be Compatible?

Psalm 19:1-14

This Sunday we're going to look at the Bible's account of creation and see how it compares to science's explanation of the big bang and evolution. Are they irreparably opposed to each other or merely looking at different things? Come find out for yourself.

Aren't the Bible Manuscripts Full of Copy Errors?

Matthew 6:9-13

Yes, it's true that we don't have any of the original manuscripts from the Bible's authors. All we have are copies of copies of copies, etc. And errors have crept in -- even in the Lord's Prayer! Do we know how many copy errors there are? Are they significant? What do we know? Come find out for yourself.

Can the Bible Be Read in a Way That's Authoritative?

2 Timothy 3:10-17

Sometimes we struggle to know what God's saying to us through the Bible. What parts are we expected to obey? Have some parts been phased out for Christians? Is there a consensus view of how we're supposed to read the Bible? Come find out for yourself.
