The Sum of Thy Word Is Truth
A Daily Bible Teaching Radio Program From Jim Andrews: Pastor, Teacher, and Author

Introduction to I John

I John was written to lst century believers in Asia Minor to guard themselves against a pernicious heresy that today we know as incipient or pre-gnosticism, a cluster of teachings that took sin lightly, believed in salvation by ‘enlightenment’ via secret rites, and was socially elitist, etc.  To expose them and to give believers some benchmarks by which to test themselves John provides some tests of authenticity.  Gnosticism may have come and gone but certain features of it continue to manifest themselves to this day and must be taken as serious threats to the integrity of the faith. The epistle is as relevant today as the day it was written and it would do all those into ‘easy believism’ or ‘cheap grace’ a world of good to read it over and over again until its message seeps in.

Introduction to Psalms

The Psalms comprise perhaps the most generally beloved literature in all of God’s word.  The reason for that is not a puzzle.  The psalms, many penned by King David, are so personal and addressed to God “out of the pits” where, at one time or another (or better yet many times) all of us believers […]
