1.      When you meet people who do not believe the Bible, what seems to be their main objection?

2.      What is your biggest obstacle to reading/studying the Bible?

4.      What “inspired,” “God-breathed” mean to you?  How have you experience God’s word bringing you wisdom and insight beyond yourself?

5.      Consider this passage:  Matthew 5 - 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
