Perspective: What is the Big Picture?

  • Facts without context are useless. A bike with nowhere to go is useless too. It’s not enough to know that a bike can get us from Point A to Point B, we need to have a reason to actually use that bike to go from Point A to Point B. Understanding the big picture that the bike will get us where we want to go faster helps us to understand and use the bike for its intended purpose.

  • We believe the Bible is God’s revelation of Himself to mankind. That means our aim is not to view the Bible from our perspective, but rather to see it from His. You wouldn’t want someone to take your words and give them their own meaning, would you? We don’t want to do that to God either! It’s just not polite.

    Instead, we strive to see the world as God sees it, to see others as God sees them, and to see ourselves as God sees us!
