Where the world comes to study the Bible

ABCs of Christan Growth - Reader Emails

Hello Mr. Keathley,

I have been reading your "ABCs for Christian Growth, Laying the Foundation" and I am on the Part 3, lesson 7. I have enjoyed the study(s) greatly thus far and have come to a greater and more mature state in my walk because of it. I want to thank you for the effort that you have put into this study because of the impact it has made on my life, and I'm sure it has made on others. You have a way of putting forth these teachings in a clear and concise manner which makes it easier to understand and grasp. You use a method of repetition of verses and themes which work great. You review previous material in latter sections that help root in the concepts.

The ABC's course should be taught in every church and should be mandatory for all new believers. I believe that if more Christians were taught the fundamentals then there would be less room for error to creep in the church. I've read through yours once and I know there is a bunch of truth that I didn't get. I believe it's most important for new believers, since older Christians have had time to be exposed to it over the years. (Chris)

Dear Pastor Keathley

I have thoroughly enjoyed and have been enriched by your series ABCs for Christian Growth. I was reborn a little over a year ago but in our church there was not this kind of information available.… I am interested in teaching a class at our church based on your Lesson Plans. Would that be OK? Thanks again and God Bless. (Jeff )

Our daughter (11 years old), has just recently (May 28, 1997) asked the Lord Jesus Christ to be her Savior! I will now start using your ABC's studies for discipling her, as well as a good study guide for our family devotions. My oldest son (8 years old) has been saved over a year, and is growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. My wife and I are "born again," for the past four and a half years! HALELLUJAH!!! WHAT A SAVIOR! AMEN! (Noel)

Mr. Keathley

I've found the ABC's very helpful for new believers and I would like to share it with my fellow countrymen in their language. I write to ask you for permission to translate some of your material.  I have in mind currently the ABCs for new Christians. I write with a pseudonym for safety purposes because it is illegal to publish religious stuff in my country without a permit. Thanks for your time and God bless you richly. (Ryan)

Mr. Keathley:

I have to say that I'm impressed with the "ABCs for Christian Growth" and haven't finished poring over it. I have downloaded the document and intend to print it and have it bound and add it permanently to my personal library.

I teach a College-age Singles class at my church and a large portion of my class attend a local Bible college, and I'm constantly challenged to challenge them. Also, our church is looking for a curriculum to start a Discipleship Class for new converts. I would like to recommend your "ABCs" to my pastor.… God bless you abundantly for your abundant benevolence to the Christian community. (Mike )

Dear Mr. Keathley,

I frequently visit the www.bible.org web site and find it to be an invaluable resource. Some months ago I found articles from the ABCs and found them to appear to directly relate to what I was needing spiritually, so I downloaded the document. When I started reading it, I realized I was going to want to hold on to that document and I really don't have a good filing system for articles that I find on the WWW, although I am working on one! Anyway, I purchased the neatly printed and bound version. I have recommended it to I bet 15 people. Great book! (Steve)
