Knowing requires a basis without which nothing can be said to be known. Each field of study is based on premises that establish what is to be recognized as a valid source of knowledge and what is to be accepted as a sound methodology. This aspect of our understanding of the world is dealt with under: How do we Know?

Why would not the same be true of Christianity?

Knowing? Matthew 7:24-25
Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them
will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house,
but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. (Matthew 7:24-25, ESV)

Must not one understand what are the basis upon which it is possible to attain knowledge of God and of His ways for humans? To this end, would it not be mandatory for every individual who claims to be a Christian to be able to decide for himself how the Bible is to be understood and applied today? And how can that happen without direct personal contact with the biblical text? You are interested in this kind of question and application?

These are the themes investigated under :

This section of is dedicated to the question of knowing in general, and how this can be applied when it comes to understanding the Bible. Tools are provided to help one in his exploration of what the Bible is about and how to study it for oneself, as well as a number of studies that might help in understanding its contents.
