How do I launch my internet based bible study for young adults?

We Answered:

Hi friend,

Christian blogs like: Brilliant Believers@yahoogroups.com, KnowledgeoOfTheTruth@yahoogroups.com or christiansscholars@yahoogroups.com are your best avenue. Websites are sometimes slow and unresponsive.

First of all if you want a Christian group that caters to young adults start with one of the known yahoo Christian groups to gather experience. These groups, to begin with, are usually supervised by their owners. But you can post your Christian messages on them directed to young people. Or you can find one that caters specifically to young people. Having your own personal website is a very slow way of reaching people, unless you have good connections. Most of the time, the people who see your messages do not respond.

My advise to you is to get a Yahoo group that is already current so that you can get the kind of experiece that you need When you have gotten the experience then you can branch off on your own. Warning: there are many responsed on discussion groups and people usually end up doctrinally confused. You want to evangelized for Christ, so find a group where you can state the WORD without dissent.

How do you do this? Join one of the Yahoo groups. Go to the top of the page which says "start your own group" click on it and it will give you directions. some groups are small with 35 members some are large like mine with over 11,000. That is phenominally large. If you can get a few hundred members to 1000 you are doing well .

Why doesn't the Catholic Church have Bible study classes for adults?

We Answered:

As a Roman Catholic of 55+ years now, I can say "Uncle Joe" unquestionably has the best answer. I may not prefer the same Bible he does, but, that's something that can be worked with. I prefer the Douay-Rheims Version. As to the fools who think the Roman Catholic Church doesn't like the Bible or discourages Catholics from reading it, the fact that I have copied the Bible by hand once with a ballpoint pen onto looseleaf paper and am now copying four more copies simultaneously in the same manner most likely outdoes any Bible study they ever thought of doing. It's a very intense and wonderful experience that you have to take "one-day-at-a-time", and when you get through, you'll feel so "left-out" of that intense relationship with God / Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit that you'll immediately begin your next copy. It'll take years to copy one, but you have all the time you need since you don't have to copy a massive amount each day. You can decide just how much each day that you want to copy, anywhere from one verse to one chapter or more, and even skipping a day every now and then. My first copying took 7 and 3/4 years, and the copies I'm doing now, since I have four copies going at the same time, will take around 12 years or so, but I've got all the time I need as long as God keeps me here. And when He calls me home, well, I know He's done with my work and may pass it on to others. But, ask your priest. You can find a Bible study class, or can help get one started. God Bless you.

What is a good study Bible for young adults (age 18-25)?

We Answered:

There are a lot of good 'youth bibles' but I think this age range is more suited to a 'conventional' translation accompanied by a book of interpretative notes. The King James version may just put you off. Although the literary value and beauty of language is immense in the KJ bible, it can be a bit heavy. So I would recommend the New International Version as the language is clear and pure. The New Revised Standard Version is also truly ecumenical. There is a New King James bible which I think is toned down, but I haven't had much experience with this. A completely different strand of biblical translation is the Jerusalem bible. But again, this is heavier than the NIV and the NRSV. Also, if you are studying the Christian religion in general, it is a great idea to get a bible with all the apocryphal books. This is common in Catholic editions. This is great reference even if you are protestant because it is useful in a historical context. I know NRSV editions sometimes have the apocryphal books.

So I would reccomend the NRSV. If you do not want it in AE there is an anglicised version in standard BE.

Stay away from ones like The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures which is authorised by Watchtower. These are very denominational biased. The ones I mentioned are ecumenical.

Robin Said:

Has anyone ever done the Organic God bible study for young adults?

We Answered:

It's definitely worth your time (and Al Gore had nothing to do with it :-)...

It looks at the attributes of God that folks don't typically talk about plus the short video segments allows plenty of time for discussion - which I really liked.

I'd say go for it!

Discuss It!
