In April of 1973, I became a Christian. I have been a reader and a student of the Bible ever since. It might seem unusually strange, but it has been only within the past 3 months that I really came to understand the Real New Testament Message. What, you might ask? No, I knew the message, but it came to me in a whole new manner, which has made it infinitely more understandable and useable, as I hope to explain.
There appears to be 10 Essential Elements to all of the Real New Testament Message. Each element logically; and more importantly, Biblically and spiritually, leads to the other. And the whole connects all the way around to go back to the beginning. Let me list those 10 Elements first, as an introduction to them. Write them down. Take them with you. They are:
8.) New Birth
9.) New Life
Now, of course, there are plenty of other teachings, but this constitutes the Essential matters. The thing to do with these is to commence to read thru the entire New Testament and to catalogue the verses and passages that serve as “proof texts” for these 10 Elements, and see if they don’t make the obvious and logical connection to one another, as well as to greatly heighten your own understanding of the New Testament, and your own ability to share the Message with others. It has done wonders for me, and for others who have accepted the challenge to do just that! It’s what the Book is all about!
