Bible Challenge - Teachings 3
Good Evening to All!
This will be the last Challenge on Teachings. I usually try not to do more than 2 parts to each challenge subject, but I feel that Teachings is a very important topic. I am truly hoping that a notable amount of readers are participating in the Bible Challenges. I wish I could afford to do so, and I would give out prizes or incentives to take them. I know for me, it used to be hard to really get into reading the Bible, but I always enjoyed doing Bible Word Searches, Bible Crosswords and Bible quizzes. That is where I originally learned the majority of what I knew about the Word of God. Now, since I found the "faith" where I get "fed" the Word of God on a regular basis, it makes me hunger for more . Therefore, I have started enjoying reading, and doing research especially since I started my blog. Anyway with that being said, on with the Challenge. By the way, next weeks Challenge is titled "Tongues to Speak". I hope you will join me for that one also. If there is anyone out there who could tell me how I could make this Challenge interactive where you could answer on line, please let me know. I think that would make it more appealing to readers if they wouldn't have to write everything down. I would like for it to be where you could either print it out and take it (so you could save it to study it again), or do it online and then print it out. If there is an answer to this I would really like to know.
