This year, we are excited to dedicate 52 weeks to memorizing 52 Core Teachings of Christianity! Memorizing these core truths each week is a great way to learn and understand the most important teachings.
We all get asked about our faith at some point; by our kids, by friends, family, coworkers, and we may even often ask ourselves some of these questions. These are a great way to both establish our faith and reinforce the core truths put forth in God's word.
Each week, we will pose a question, provide the answer, in the hopes that you will spend time on your own, with your kids each week memorizing these core truths. The kid's answer memorization portion is written in green. We will also provide a bible reference that supports the core truth, and a video by various church leaders that further explores the question each week.
We hope that this will open up dialogue around the table, in your home, or a friend on some of the most important ideas of God and his work.
There are a variety of ways to commit texts to memory, and some techniques suit certain learning styles better than others. A few examples include:
Read the question and answer out loud, then try to repeat them without looking
Write the questions and answers on cards and tape them in a conspicuous area. Read them aloud every time you see them.
Make flash cards with the question on one side and the answer on the other
Write out the question and answer. Repeat. The process of writing helps a person’s ability to recall text
What is God?
God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything. He is eternal, infinite, and unchangeable in his power and perfection, goodness and glory, wisdom, justice, and truth. Nothing happens except through him and by his will.
