"As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." Proverbs 27:17
These Iron Sharpens Iron Groups focus on Paul's example in the book of Acts.
If we look closer at Paul’s teachings and life, we see that Paul relied heavily on logic, reason, argumentation, and evidence to defend the truth of the gospel. Acts 9:22, 13:15-39, 17:2-4, 17:22-34, 19:8-10, 26-22:26, 28:23
We are to do the same.
But we have been lead to believe that "church" is about sitting passively and listening to someone else explain the Bible. I am not saying this is wrong, as I did that for many many years, but at some point in our walk, we need to learn HOW TO discuss like Paul did.
These Iron Sharpens Iron Groups are about a group of believers coming together to apply logic, reason, argumentation, and evidence to grow up the body of Christ through discussion of His Word.
We focus on: > Devotion to Scripture > Meet in Homes > Everyone discipled and discipling > Everyone exercising their gifts > Multiplication of groups > Simple gatherings
How you can get involved: > Join a group > Host a group > Start a group
CorrineRios Ministries comes alongside you to get your group going and keep it going through discipleship and training.
"We should be prepared to share evidence for the existence of God and the resurrection. We need to learn the argument from prophecy. We should know something about the philosophies and worldviews around us and learn how to use them to build common ground. We need to be able to adapt to our audience so that we can be all things to all men in order that some might be saved. Paul said we’re to imitate him as he imitated Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:1." Eric Manning
