There are some really important fundamental truths you need to learn as a new Christian. You should start with learning how to become saved if you haven’t already accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior. Review what is on our Eternal Life section to find more information.
Doctrine is the instructions on how to behave and what hopes you will expect from following that doctrine. The Bible is a big containing 66 books, 39 in the Old Testament, 27 in the New, written over 4,000 years and over 40 human writers! Is it as simple as saying the Old Testament is for old times and the New Testament is for now? That would not be the case because the Apostle Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” We need to then learn how to figure out what doctrine in all of scripture applies to us. The Doctrine section helps you start doing that so you may perform those good works.
As a new Christian, you need the word of God. Which Bible should you purchase? Well, there are really only two Bibles to choose from, the King James Bible and the new Bibles, which is literally everything other kind. Why is this the case? We will start informing you in the Bible section why the King James version is the preserved inspired scripture that was given by the Holy Spirit to men of God who wrote them down to share with others.
