What Every Christian Ought to Know Gallery Part 2

A, B, C, easy as 1, 2, 3

What Every Christian Ought to Know is a bold yet approachable guide to the ABCs of Christianity. Publishers Weekly calls it a “beautifully simple primer on essential truths.”

Dr. Rogers provides readers with a well organized, well-reasoned grasp of such topics as salvation, eternal security, prayer, the Holy Spirit, resisting temptation and finding God’s will, as well as the authority of the Bible and how to understand it better.

Defendable or Doubtful

Most Christians don’t evangelize not because they don’t believe, but because they are afraid they don’t fully know what they believe. “What Every Christian Ought to Know has been designed to help [readers] ‘give a defense’ for the basic doctrines of the Christian faith…I want you to be able to confidently say, ‘I know what I believe and why I believe it!’” -Steve Rogers

Vitality for Eternity

Christians need a vital resource whether new or seasoned saints. Dr. Rogers offers readers intellectual truth while also providing them with the “spiritual nutrients” required to produce mature faith.

Growth, it all comes down to growth

Just as plants need certain essentials to grow—light, water and fertile soil—so do Christians wanting to develop strong spiritual roots and bear good fruit. What Every Christian Ought to Know gives believers the nurture and care their faith needs to blossom and grow.

Roots and Rest

Roots, the deeper they grow, the wider the branch extends. The wider the branch extends, the more creatures nest and find rest. Rogers strengthens believers in their spiritual roots to they can learn, grow, and provide the same for others.

Parable of the People for the People

The Kingdom of God is like a “seed,” a “field,” “a farmer.” The kingdom of God grows and it grows inside people bringing spiritual nourishment for people. It is not a metaphorical myth where spiritual muses run around like flower children adorning the lilies of the valley in moist soil. Rogers reminds us the kingdom of God is a relevant reality of growth. Growth that every believer needs. Growth that feeds their soul and brings life to everything they does. That is the Kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven.

Know and Grow

Stay connected and produce good fruit. Take in truth, and strengthen your soul. “There are some basic truths every Christian ought to know. Many flounder in a sea of moral relativism and vague religious opinions [and they] don’t grow because they don’t know. Facts are like a recipe, but truth is like a meal. Digest a truth and it will change your life.” -Dr. Adrian Rogers.

Burnt Out
Growth

If you feel burnt out, it usually begins from filling a phantom socket with a substitute for love. Everyone wants to be loved, but first we need to be understood. Dr. Rogers helps believers understand an indescribable Love of Christ. Only His love fills and overflows with growth. Essentials Rogers provides help us through the inevitable growing pains and burn outs with assurance.

Day 2: C I R C L E S

Month of gratitude day 2:

We are celebrating circles this season!

O O o o o o O O o o o o O O

November 2nd marks “Find Circles Everywhere” Holiday-that’s just what we are doing!

This elusively shape escapes perfection by a secret switching of the universe. The earth is round enough to be called a sphere, yet it is flat (especially if you have been to Texas). It is infinite within itself, timelessly bound to its size and shape, never shrinking nor growing. Some days, we seem to inherit the “Peter Principle” of “when in doubt or danger, yell and run in circles.” We can sit stuck in ruts, or discover the forward motion of centripetal force when rubber hits the gravel-thank you Flintstones for revolution ongoing the stone wheel. Life’s not set or stuck in stone, it is ever evolving, changing-as change is the most “unchangeable groove” according to G.k. Chesterton. However, we find milestones, stations, marks of growth in spite of growing pains when we look for circles. We see that this Holiday last year, we were not where we are now, nor will we remain so until November 2, 2013.

Here’s to the same fall season with a different perspective, looking for circles everywhere we find ourselves!!

O O o o o o O O o o o o O O

Feel like you are going in circles and just want some guidance? Non-solicited, naturally. Here are some great resources!

What Every Christian Ought to Know (but honestly most of us don’t)

Late pastor Dr. Adrian Rogers offers believers solid grounding for a growing faith

It is all about growth. Growth’s the thing.

Just as plants need certain essentials to grow—light, water and fertile soil—so do Christians who want to develop strong spiritual roots and bear good fruit. That’s why revered late pastor Dr. Adrian Rogers wrote What Every Christian Ought to Know: Solid Grounding for a Growing Faith (B&H Books)—to give believers the nurture and care their faith needs to blossom and grow. In this vital resource for both new Christians and seasoned saints, Dr. Rogers offers readers intellectual truth while also providing them with the “spiritual nutrients” required to produce mature faith.

“There are some basic truths every Christian ought to know,” wrote Dr. Rogers. “Many flounder in a sea of moral relativism and vague religious opinions [and they] don’t grow because they don’t know. Facts are like a recipe, but truth is like a meal. Digest a truth and it will change your life.”

Rock Solid Faith, a foundation you know that you know that you know.

Now available for the first time in paperback, What Every Christian Ought to Know is a bold yet approachable guide to the ABCs of Christianity. One of the last books written by Dr. Rogers and also one of his best-selling, Publishers Weekly calls it a “beautifully simple primer on essential truths.” Dr. Rogers provides readers with a well organized, well-reasoned grasp of such topics as salvation, eternal security, prayer, the Holy Spirit, resisting temptation and finding God’s will, as well as the authority of the Bible and how to understand it better. While a valuable volume for new Christians and young disciples, it’s also a suitably instructive resource for believers of all ages. This new edition also includes an introduction from Steve Rogers, president of the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training Institute, plus discussion questions for personal reflection or group study.

What Every Christian Ought to Know has been designed to help [readers] ‘give a defense’ for the basic doctrines of the Christian faith,” says Steve Rogers. “Since its initial release in 2005, God continues to use this book to equip and encourage believers—new and old. Like the tens of thousands who have already read this book, I want you to be able to confidently say, ‘I know what I believe and why I believe it!’”

One of America’s most respected Bible teachers, he communicated to millions through his Love Worth Finding radio and television ministry that continues to be broadcasted today in more than 150 countries around the world. Dr. Rogers was also senior pastor of the 27,000-member Bellevue Baptist Church near Memphis, Tennessee, and a popular author whose books include Unveiling the End Times in Our Time and The Incredible Power of Kingdom Authority.

A leader in his denomination, serving three terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, Dr. Rogers was honored to be inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame in 2003 by the National Religious Broadcasters. He passed away in 2005. His son, Steve Rogers, oversees the Adrian Rogers Pastor Training Institute. Dr. Rogers is also survived by wife Joyce, three other children, nine grandchildren and one great‐grandchild.
