Introduction to the Subject

WHY CHRISTIAN BASICS?

By Christian basics we mean a study of those truths that are essential for our relationship with the living God, ourselves and others.

Many of the subjects to be considered are not only basic for an initial experience of the Father's love, but continue to be primary in the day by day experience and growth in that love. In this sense it is not a course consisting of elementary facts which once understood cease to have relevance. However, the object will be to remain simple and functional.

THE AIM OF CHRISTIAN BASICS
As we have indicated, the aim of the course is not to gather together a list of facts, but to know the life that flows from a submission to the truth about our Father God and the creation He has called into being. So our aim is to be confirmed in the hope of our calling - a calling that is rooted in the nature of God, and is expressed to us through His plan of salvation. In this we' are called to be actively involved. (Consider at length Ephesians 1:15-23).

We should expect then that the crisis will not be how much we can store away in our brain but, rather, whether we are prepared to receive God's word and live in the love that is ours through Grace.
