The Biblical literacy of congregations is a frequent topic of conversation among pastors. How often do members read their Bibles? How well can they articulate important doctrines? Can they discern error from truth? Sadly, many of the pastors with whom I’ve spoken express varying degrees of cynicism about their congregations’ level of understanding of God’s Word. In my experience, many Believers are lacking in their understanding of the necessity of Christ’s life for our salvation.
