The purpose of listening to others teach the Bible is that we all would be filled with God’s love and grow a genuine faith. It is important to make sure the teachings we hear, the books we read, and the media we consume helps to grow in our faith and leave us with a clear conscience. What we allow influence us makes all the difference on the condition of our spiritual life.
The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.
~ 1 Timothy 1:5 [NLT]
