About 10 years ago, the summer series of our assembly here in Central Florida addressed aspects of THE DOCTRINE OF SALVATION. Subjects included in this doctrine includes adoption, justification, redemption, reconciliation etc.Such subjects tend to be studied by the TOPICAL METHOD OF BIBLE STUDY which is a form of SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY, whereby the several and sundry scriptures on a particular topic are gathered together and organized in an orderly way usually by asking and seeking to answer the following questions viz 1- WHAT?, 2- WHEN?, 3- WHY?,4- WHO?, 5- WHERE?, 6- WHICH?, 7- HOW, 8- WHAT THEN? SO WHAT?, i.e THE CONCLUSION.
I try to set out as many questions as I can under all eight of these headings on separate sheets of paper. Then I shuffle the papers around until I get the questions under each heading to flow properly so that the information makes the most sense. So we don’t always end up with the questions in the same order as in the list in the last slide all the time. However, # 8- WHAT THEN? SO WHAT? is always LAST of all. # 8 questions are ALWAYS THE CONCLUSION.
THERE IS ONE MAJOR RULE! We must never say in our teaching ANYTHING THAT WE CAN NOT BACKUP WITH A REFERENCE FROM SCRIPTURE CORRECTLY DIVIDED! Whereas one will not always get good or suitable questions in any particular topic for each word WHAT? WHEN? WHY? WHO? WHERE? WHICH? HOW?, but if you follow this simple process you will get much more out of your study than if you don’t follow some procedure.
