As shocking as that statement is, we must admit its truthfulness. Consider the following:
Bible classes can destroy ignorance. If this does not occur, we ourselves are in danger of being destroyed as were the people of old (Hosea 4:6). Studying together can eliminate this malady.
Bible classes can destroy loneliness. Some of the strongest and most long-lasting friendships are developed when Christian people meet together to study God’s Word.
Bible classes can destroy lethargy. When members are motivated by the Word of God and encouraged by active Christian teachers, the lukewarm spirit is driven away.
