Each week, MABC sponsors an interactive Bible Study class at 10:00 a.m. Everyone is welcome. For specifics on what we are studying, please check out the Community Calendar.
The Sin of Certainty
We are currently studying Peter Enns’ book, The Sin of Certainty: Why God Desires Our Trust More Than Our “Correct” Beliefs. “When did being ‘right’ with God come to mean believing the right things about God—believing the right doctrines, reading the Bible the right way, holding the right views? For many Christians, this idea is at the very center of their religious lives. And that’s a problem. Because this focus on being correct can actually distract us from faith and from God. What happens when the security of ‘knowing what you believe’ gets disrupted—as it does sooner or later? What if once-settled questions—like ‘What is God really like?’—suddenly become unsettled?”
